Give a Child Their Dream Summer
The summer months at York Street Project give us the opportunity to open up a world of possibilities for our children. Each July and August, we take our children on as many daily and overnight trips as possible to explore the beach, go camping, visit a museum, see a farm, have fun in a park, cool off in a pool, and other fun activities!
Did you know that you can make this happen by sponsoring a child or family for one or more such activities this summer?
Every parent dreams of giving their child(ren) a summer to remember. Please help expose our children to these worlds of culture, entertainment, and experiences that they might not otherwise ever see or do.
All field trips are chaperoned by members of the York Street Project staff.
Summer Program Field Trips
Each summer, we provide all the children attending our summer program at The Nurturing Place the opportunity to experience a variety of activities that build positive experiences.
The Summer Enrichment Program is not only fun and eye-opening, but ensures our children are continually learning even when school is not in session. The learning curriculum is enhanced by offering experiential field trips that broaden the horizons and minds of our young students.
The children attending our Summer Enrichment Program experience a variety of the activities listed, depending on their age. Help make some young dreams come true this summer and make a donation to support our kids.
