All proceeds from Happy Camper Night benefit our Wayfinders scholars. Wayfinders’ mission is to ignite students’ potential by expanding their confidence, connections, and horizons. We achieve this through summer camp experience, year-round enrichment programs, and mentor relationships for self-motivated, underserved students.
In 2021, Wayfinders will serve 150 low-income Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students. To provide summer enrichment for our scholars this summer, we have identified 21 local and virtual online camps with 15 partners that scholars can enroll in based on their interests including Duke Summer Session, Wake Forest Summer Immersion, UNCG’s All-Arts, Sciences & Technology Camp, McColl Center for Arts + Innovation, Discovery Place Science, and more. Some of our older scholars will build skills through internships and employment.
To complement camps, we will host virtual and in-person activities and provide educational and engaging monthly themed care packages including: Coping Skills and Resiliency, Get Outside and Move!, Building Bridges Across Difference, and Back to School. With our scholars’ well-being in mind, we will also be distributing face masks donated by individuals across the country.
Wayfinders works to provide underserved youth with access to enriching out-of-school experiences, opportunities, and expanded social networks essential for success in school and in life. YOUR support of Happy Camper Night 2020 will expand Wayfinders’ programs and deepen the positive lasting impact made on our scholars.
