Publicado el 27 de agosto de 2019

YMCA de Kingston y Ulster County han recibido una subvención de $2,500 de Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation para Camp Starfish for Disadvantaged Youth, un programa de verano de bajo costo para niños de escuelas primarias en riesgo.

"The goal at Camp Starfish is to develop healthy campers through active play and nutritional education. We strongly promote creativity through interactions with our community. We can all feel proud of what our Y is doing for these children," said Heidi Kirschner, President and CEO of the YMCA of Kingston and Ulster County. "We are grateful to Ulster Savings for supporting this worthy program," she added.

Camp Starfish addresses summer learning loss, childhood health, obesity, and unintentional drownings. The camp is open to all children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. The Y works with the Kingston City School District which provides busing for children so they can attend camp safely. Camp Starfish provides a safe, fun, and enriching summer program to the community. Campers follow a daily schedule that includes sports, games, swim lessons, fitness classes, science, music, reading, drama, journalism, farming, arts and crafts, and more.

La Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation fue creada en 2003 para ayudar a la comunidad local en las áreas de vivienda, educación y servicios humanos.
