Yellow Bus Summer Camp ReCap

Another amazing summer is come and gone for Faces without Places.  Each fall we take time to reflect on the impact we have made in the lives of children experiencing homelessness in Greater Cincinnati.

Each day two school buses went around to 10 stops each to pick up children experiencing homelessness.  Upon their arrival campers participated in Movin' it in the Mornin' and every Friday the campers enthusiastically participated in Freestyle Friday where they each took turns dancing in the center of the circle.

After Movin' it, campers were provided breakfast followed by academics in math and reading, broken up into three age groups (5-7, 8&9, 10-12).

Upon completion of academics, students were provided a delicious lunch, which was predominantly provided by volunteers, along with great company!

After lunch campers participated in a number of enriching activities and no two days were ever the same.  Campers went swimming, bowling, to the movies, putt putting, participated in Girl Scouts, the Dream Academy, learned about gardening, visited the area museums, and the 10-12 year old even wrote, produced, and starred in their own movie.

Once a week campers were taken on a surprise field trip to locations such as Kings Island, Coney Island, a Science Fair hosted by P&G, a field day with Happen Inc.,Gameworks and more!

We hope you enjoy the photos on our Flickr page as much as we enjoyed taking them!

Stay tuned for the fun filled activities we have planned for the summer of 2013!
