Keeping Kids Safe This Summer

Every year, Boys Town Washington DC conducts a summer camp that offers fun and educational experiences to local youth. Our 7-week long camp provides ongoing socialization and enrichment activities for kids, and ensures that they are supervised and safe, fed nutritious meals and have access to school-based mental health care, while school is out of session.

This summer, Boys Town Washington DC welcomed children from the DMV to our camp and for the first time, we instituted Junior Camp Counselors. These counselors were youth from the Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program, who also participated in our Successful Futures programming. These youth had the opportunity to gain hands-on work experience as counselors, in addition to videography and media training. Thank you to our own Eric Branch, who provided media instruction!
