Galloway Ridge, a Life Plan Community in Pittsboro, North Carolina, is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Carolina’s Wren Family Center in Siler City to host three summer camps for youth in the area. The camps are organized by the Galloway Ridge Community Engagement Committee, which has selected ‘Growing Together’ as the theme in order to emphasize Galloway Ridge’s commitment to furthering the club’s mission of empowerment.
Since 1995, Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Carolina have helped countless students realize their potential and grow into thriving adults. The clubs have had a significantly positive impact on children in the area, with 73% of low-income club members age 12-17 receiving mostly As and Bs, compared to only 69% of their peers nationally. By hosting summer camps for students, Galloway Ridge hopes to encourage and support such achievements through an enjoyable learning experience.
As part of the camp, three groups of thirteen students from Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Carolina’s Wren Family Center in Siler City will come to Galloway Ridge this summer for the camp. The camp will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the months of July and August. The first group will attend on July 10th and 12th, and the second group will attend on July 24th and 26th. The third group will attend on August 7th and 9th. The committee will also host a Family and Residents Gathering on Saturday, August 11th from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
