The Greater Waverly Foundation's Village Initiative hosted a summer camp that offered an array of fun activities and outdoor experiences for children ages 5 to 14. We strive to create a safe and nurturing environment for children to learn, grow, and make lasting memories.
What makes us unique is that we rely on our volunteers to help us run the camp. Our volunteers are passionate about helping children reach their full potential and make the most out of their summer camp experience. We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join us for the summer season.
Our mission is to address the educational, social and economic needs of children, families, and neighborhoods within the Greater Waverly Community, and surrounding areas.
