SUMMER OF LEARNING FOR OUR TEENS Our 15 McBurney Y-Scholar Counselors In Training (CIT’s) have bee very busy at summer camp this year! In addition to their CIT duties, they have taken part in quite a few other very interesting programs. During the third session of summer camp they had the opportunity to work with WNYC radio producers for a week! The week culminated in the teens presenting group projects on Social Media Literacy. The teens also got to participate in Camp Old Navy. They spent a day with Old Navy managers at a Manhattan Old Navy to learn the ropes of retail! They learned how to run the dressing room, work the cash register, got a full run down of Old Navy denim, and picked RXWRXW¾WVIRUSRWHQWLDO2OG1DY\ shoppers. It has been a busy summer for our Y-scholars! We’re happy to have had them with us this summer and wish them well in their future endeavors.
HAPPY CAMPERS We’d like to give a BIG THANK YOU to all our Summer Camp kids, staff and parents! Camp was great is this year. In fact, it may have been our best year ever! Campers were happy, safe, and having a blast learning new things thanks to the tireless hard work of their counselors, unit leaders, and directors. We can’t wait to see you all back with us next year!
