Community Human Services, a nonprofit in the Pittsburgh area, is introducing an awesome new summer camp for 5th and 6th graders. LEAD Civic Engagement will take place over six weeks and introduce these young students to topics such as leadership, science, arts & music, diversity, environment, and government. The camp will venture into the community for miscellaneous activities, but will primarily be located at the CHS headquarters on Lawn Street. This location is ideal for parents dropping their kids off before going to work in Oakland or downtown. Any student in the age range is encouraged to participate in the program, taking place June 24th to August 2nd. The program is $125 per week, including volunteering activities and a field trip every week. Scholarships are available. Apply soon by visiting http://www.chscorp.org/. Young students will leave the camp with a lot of knowledge and a new appreciation for making a difference in our community! If you need any additional information, feel free to contact Trevor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-246-1615.
