Building Community Through
From the CEO:
As I write this, I’m reflecting on two events we’ve held over the past few weekends. The first was an in-person interactive program with our friends at The Science Wiz and was held at The Weber School. The second was a virtual Pre-Purim Minecraft program, in partnership with our friends at Lost Tribe. A total of 100 kids and tweens attended these events, which makes me happy for so many reasons!
While all of the kids (and their families) who attended these events had a great time, to me it was another reminder of the importance of community—not just coming out of a pandemic but throughout our lives. It showed me that more than ever, people are wanting to create community and camaraderie and be together.
To that end, In the City Camps will be working this year, beyond our usual summer programming, to provide more opportunities to build and participate in our shared community.
And while our summer camp is the heart and soul of our programming, we are looking forward to providing more year-round programming opportunities for kids and their families.
If you were able to attend The Science Wiz or Purim Minecraft events, we hope you enjoyed them. If you couldn’t make it, we hope you can join us at a future event! We have a full array of programs listed on our website, here.
As always, if you have any suggestions or comments for fun events that will enrich the
community we are building, please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
