Please share this information with families! 

As children experiencing homelessness begin to prepare for the school year, they may feel anxious and unprepared. ECYEH’s Build Your Best School Year! virtual summer camps for middle and high school students are designed to provide the skills and self-confidence children will need to start the school year on a high note.

Download and share our digital flyers and sample social media posts! 

Middle School Kids Camp (grades 6-8)

Aug. 8-12, 2022, 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

High School Kids Camp (grades 9-12)

Aug. 15-19, 2022, 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Each camper will receive a Welcome to Camp kit including a free Amazon Fire 7 tablet, supplies for camp activities, school supplies, and a special surprise to kick off the start of camp!

Help us reach the children who can benefit the most from this experience.

  • Host a “campsite” where children can participate together. Your school or program will be responsible for the supervision of children during the camps. Please contact Melissa Turnpaugh, 717-763-1661, ext. 120 to host a campsite.
  • Share our digital flyer and social media posts with families in your school or program.
  • Post information on your website or in your parent portal.
  • Help to ensure participants have reliable, daily internet access for the duration of the camps.
  • Share this information and link to the registration page with families and your colleagues who serve children experiencing homelessness.

Let us know if there are any barriers for prospective students to participate. We will assist to remove those barriers as much as possible.

Want to host a campsite or have questions?
