The Kinston Youth Enrichment Project will sponsor Camp Promise 2013, "Science, Self-Esteem and Service," a summer enrichment program for students in grades 4-8 from July 15-31, 2013. The free enrichment camp will meet daily from 9 a.m. to noon at one of our proposed sites:  Queen Street United Methodist Church or Rochelle Middle School.  2013 will be the 3rd annual Camp Promise session in Kinston:  2011 sessions were held at Queen Street United Methodist Church and Camp Promise 2012 was held at Rochelle Middle School.

The program will continue to offer NASA Summer of Innovation themed and science enrichment activities for camp participants.  The sessions will include  "Learning the Wright Way to Fly and Robotics Hands Down - an Introduction to Robotics. Other camp sessions include:  "Take 5 and Read," a literacy program with free book distributions; SETCLAE activities (Self-Esteem Through Culture Leads to Academic Excellence);  "A Journey Towards Womanhood" mentoring curriculum by Sisterhood Agenda;  4-H Project Alert presented by Lenoir County Center for  Cooperative Extension; Zumba and/or dance sessions; and an end-of-camp enrichment field trip to Charlotte, NC or Wilmington, NC.

The Kinston Youth Enrichment Project is a program of Young Women of Promise, which was founded in 2001 by Kinston native Theresa Williams.  Camp Promise is designed to provide academic enrichment for our students during the summer when opportunities for academic stimulation are limited.

We are currently accepting contributions for Camp Promise 2013.  To nominate a youth for Camp Promise or to volunteer to work with our campers, please contact Kristal Suggs at 252/468-3007  or Theresa Williams at 252/522-8019.

Such programs are rather informative. They contribute not only to the implementation of the curriculum but also the development of additional capabilities. A very successful period was chosen to conduct these sessions.

For many children summer means camp. Many of them can't imegine their life without camp. So I see this information will be helpful for many people.
