the project

The Sevynteenth Foundation “Productive Young Citizens” Summer Camp is an extension of its inaugural Mind, Body & Soul Summer Camp!  The organization has been blessed with a vision and a team to carry out this program for the 3rd year!

The Summer Camp will run for 9 weeks, beginning the first week of June and ending the last week of July.  The Sevynteenth Foundation has found that there are many learning gaps that still exist for our youth from the COVID-19 pandemic.  From the organizations learning pod experience, & after school tutoring programs, they have been able to pinpoint areas of improvement for our youth.  Each week of the camp will focus on a different subject area!  The camp will feature field trips, guest presenters and lots of enriching projects!


Our camp adheres to CDC Summer Camp Guidelines!  We will have a small, impactful camp opportunity. Our campers will stay in cohorts aby age and gender.  We will have activities outdoors whenever possible!  


Our weeks themes this year will include Life Skills & Entrepreneurship, Fine Arts, Culture & Talent, Science & Technology, Around the World and Sports & Fitness! We plan to partner with a variety of Cleveland organizations to make this camp a success!  Some of our favorite and most amazing partners are the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, Let Art Breathe, Sigma Gamma Rho, Brickhouse Wellness, The Public Health Notebook, MyCom, CLE Consulting Firm, Abundant Love Community Outreach, Youth Financial Literacy, Queen I Am, Finding Blank, the Missing Link, the Collinwood Library, and more! 


We have a really exciting summer planned for our campers, but some of our families are unable to afford the entire camp fee.  We would love to be able to prorate camper fees, with the help of this platform as well as other fundraisers.

the steps

1. Market and promote summer camp to fill registration spots

2. Begin fundraising to minimize camp costs

3. Plan out summer camp activities and field trips

4. Begin summer camp!


why we're doing it

Students in our community need fun, enriching opportunities for the summer.  Post-COVID, our campers are in need of relationship building, projects, and hands-on learning activities.  They are in need of being able to make the connection to learning and being valuable citizens fun!  Parents are back in the workforce and are in need of safe & affordable places for their students to learn and spend their summer!  We are ready to help build our families up and create meaningful relationships to help better our community.

Our past campers and parents look forward to this experience and they were very eager to sign up!  This is one of our favorite programs of the year!
