Project Description

Every summer, students lose an average of one month of school-year learning – but not at the MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation’s Camp Dynamite. Students who attend our five-week summer camp don’t lose the progress they made during the school year but have their school lessons reinforced week after week. Youth who participate in positive activities over the summer months have greater self-esteem, achieve higher grades, and feel a stronger sense of community.

Every weekday, nearly 160 campers in grades K-8 participate in our diverse summer camp which includes nutrition activities, tennis and swim lessons, academic enrichment, literacy and science activities, and arts & crafts. Students won’t only be having fun at the camp, but also in the community with weekly field trips to places like MOSH, Seamark Ranch and Skate Station. Camp Dynamite also provides our high school students with the opportunity to gain work experience as junior counselors, assisting at the front desk, in the camp activity rooms or on the tennis court.

By sponsoring one of our campers, you will provide students with a safe place to learn and play and give them a summer they’ll never forget!
