Summer Camp Hosted On Long Island Helps Boston Kids Learn And Thrive


. TONIGHT, A UNIQUE CAMP FOR BOSTON KIDS, WITHOUT IT, THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE A CHANCE FOR A SPECIAL SUMMER. THIS CAMP IS ABOUT MORE THAN JUST HAVING FUN. MAP. IT’S JUST A SHORT BOAT RIDE FROM BOSTON. BUT CAMP HARBOR VIEW, NESTLED ON LONG ISLAND IN BOSTON HARBOR IS A WORLD AWAY FOR MOST OF THE KIDS WHO COME HERE. CAMP HARBOR VIEW IS A PROGRAM THAT OFFERS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE JUST BEING A KID. CAMP HOSTS 900 YOUNG PEOPLE EACH SUMMER. DURING TWO FOUR-WEEK SESSIONS. MANY OF THEM ARE FROM OUR CITY NEIGHBORHOODS THAT DON’T HAVE THE GREEN SPACE, THE BEAUTIFUL SITES AND VIEWS, THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE BY THE OCEAN. IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR KIDS OUT HERE TO REALLY CHALLENGE THEMSELVES. BE PART OF NEW EXPERIENCES. MAKE NEW FRIENDS. AND PARTICIPATE IN NEW ACTIVITIES. LIKE LEARNING ABOUT GOLF. RIDING BIKES WHERE THEY DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT TRAFFIC. WORKING WITH A CHOROGRAPHER ON DANCE SKILLS. OR BUILDING THE CONFIDENCE TO TAKE ON THIS CHALLENGE. IT WAS REALLY FUN. WHAT I DID WAS I ROCK CLIMBED THE WALL. AND I TOUCHED THE TOP. FUN IS THE HOOK BUT THIS IS A LOT MORE GOING ON. TEAM WORK, COMMUNICATION, PERSEVERANCE, RESILIENCY. YOU LEARN LIKE CORE VALUES. LIKE RESPECT AND BEING HONEST AND EVERYTHING. EVEN THOUGH YOU DON’T THINK YOU’RE LEARNING, YOU STILL ARE. BUT IT’S A FUN WAY OF LEARNING. SOME OF THE CAMPERS GRADUATE INTO THE LEADERS IN TRAINING PROGRAM AND BECOME MENTORS. I FEEL LIKE I HELP FURTHER THE EXPERIENCE AND MAKE THEIR SUMMER BETTER. THIS IS A SAFETY IN THIS COMMUNITY AND AN INSPIRATION IN THIS COMMUNITY THAT FOR MANY KIDS STRUGGLING OUTSIDE OF THIS I HAND DESERVE AND NEED. THAT ROCKWALL IS AWESOME. I WANT TO GIVE THAT THING A TRY. THE CAMP PROVIDES THREE MEALS A DAY, BREAKFAST ON THE BOAT GOING TO THE ISLAND. LUNCH THERE AND DINNER ON THE WAY BACK. FROM START TO FINISH FOR A KID THAT GREW UP IN THE INNER CITY. YOU CAN IMAGINE THE DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES. HAVE THAT OUTDOOR ACTIVITY. BE IN A GROUP LIKE THAT. TREMENDOUS PROGRAM AND WHAT A BEAUTIFUL ISLAND THAT IS. AND SUCH A GOOD USE OF THE SPACE. PEOPLE LOVE IT.
