Learning to Live Successfully

Written By: Dominique Dobson, Education Program Coordinator

We are in the midst of Week 3 of EECM's Summer Day Camp and this week's theme will provide strategies for successful living as we continue to focus on "Lessons from the Playground" throughout camp. Successful living leads to one fulfilling one's purpose in life. Our youth deal with many issues and do not know how to appropriately handle them all. Unfortunately, this can hinder their success. It is essential our young people learn how to live successfully so that they are able to reach their goals and live within the purpose God has created for them.

As for in-camp activities, campers will continue working on production lines, dances, and music for the end of camp production.

This week’s trip schedule:

The 5/6’s and 7/8’s will explore art and nature at t
he Frick Art Museuem.

The 9/10’s will cheer on the Pittsburgh Pirates as they take on the Cincinnati Reds at PNC Park, and have loads of fun at Fun Fore All!

The 11/12’s will explore our cities rivers at Riverquest, a river-based educational program that provides students with a hands-on, exploratory experience that explains our rivers’ history and the importance of environmental stewardship. They will also enjoy fun in the sun at the Wave Pool.

The 13/16’s will scale tree tops at Geneva’s rope course where they will learn team building, how to encourage others, and how to overcome fear. They will go to PNC Park and cheer on the Pittsburgh Pirates as they take on the Cincinnati Reds, go horseback riding, and enjoy fun in the sun at Sandcastle.

Finally, all age groups will continue swimming at Highland Park’s pool during these hot summer days!
