Once again this summer, we are offering camps to the children of our community providing fun and empowering activities for their time out of school. We have the capacity to work with over 100 students, but many of the children in the immediate community of Oak Cliff do not have the means to pay for a week of art camp. While we offer our summer programming at-cost, it is still a difficult amount for many of the children in this area to manage.
But, as you know, this can be changed with just one donation of $85 that sends a child to art camp for a week.
During this week, they will discover that they have the ability within themselves to solve difficult problems creatively and to produce art they thought was beyond their ability. And while art camp may not seem like an epic event to most, the scholarship that you give could mean the difference between a child living their adult life in poverty and a child discovering that they can accomplish whatever they set their mind to.
And this year, we are excited to have a new space to better serve the children who participate in our camps. Thanks to you, our inaugural year of CME’s summer program in our permanent home will be the most successful yet!
We are asking you to help us close the “achievement gap” by ensuring that all of our children enjoy the opportunity to excel and thrive. Please sponsor a child for summer camp to provide them with a life-changing experience by donating today.
