“It’s important for us to have a diverse and enriching curriculum,” said Travis Knight, Associate Executive Director of the Wellness Center at ASYMCA Killeen. “We want to help find a program that fits each child’s interests, works well for the family and provides each child with a lifetime of memories.”
Each week, children enrolled in the day camp participate in a variety of fun, challenging and enriching activities, including field trips, outdoor swimming and more. Summer of Dreams camp staff are committed to ensuring a fun and safe summer, while also instilling invaluable life skills like leadership development, problem solving and conflict management.
“ASYMCA summer camps are a great example of how our branches meet the ASYMCA mission of strengthening our military family,” said ASYMCA President, William French. “The Summer of Dreams camps offer the entire package. The curriculum is designed to stimulate each child’s physical, social, intellectual and emotional development.”
