Spring Camp Treasure took place at Gold Coast Camp in Lake Worth on April 24th and 25th. CYP students from different middle schools attended. Students were treated to a bonfire, roasted marshmallows to make S'mores, participated in camp song sing-a-longs, and received comfort dolls on Friday evening courtesy of Summer Faerman and friends.
Saturday was jam packed with activities. The day started with the KidSURGE fun fitness program, instructed by Coach Rost from APlus Trainer LLC. Inspirational Rapper, E The Savant free styled with the students' names, and was a big hit. Students also enjoyed making treasure boxes with art therapist Sonia Thomas.
Other activities included: Yoga, instructed by AACY's Cara Zimmerman. Then off for a swim with new goggles from Boca West Foundation. On a hot South Florida day, nothing better than a dip in the pool to cool off. Campers also had an educational hour that included a presentation from Walgreens and Hands Only CPR instructed by Fire Rescue of Palm Beach County.
AmerCorps members served as camp counselors. Camp is made possible thanks to the help of school staff, volunteer drivers, and camp nurse along with the generosity of donors.
Most importantly, CYP students had a memorable time and respite from caregiving!
