Campfire USA: “Teens in Action Program”

In 2009, GCF funded a summer program for elementary and middle school kids in Greenbelt West.   This enrichment program was designed to provide safe, supervised recreational activities while re-forcing academic and social skills.

A second program, the Teens in Action program ( for 6th -12th grade students in Springhill Lake), allowed students to participate in activities that encourage personal development, reinforce academic learning, encourage community service, teach leadership, and provide opportunities for exposure to new experiences.

Partners include: the Greenbelt Police, Department of Social Services and community volunteerscampfireimages-b
