In the Youth Summer Day Camp Program groupings by grade are divided in five sections and meet at four participating downtown congregations. Each group is professionally staffed by Wellspring and roving instructors on art, dance and yoga meet weekly with youth. Field trips are provided weekly. Youth range in age from 4-17.
The kids meet from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm and then all participants gather at Moody Park for lunch through the Fort Wayne Community School’s Free Lunch Program.
The Summer Day Camp had a record-setting year in 2012 with 568 youth participating. We provide outreach to the Burmese community involving youth who reside in the Autumn Woods Apartments (Paulding and Anthony) and also offer a Soccer Camp as part of the summer program.
In October of 2009 Wellspring’s Summer Day Camp Program was named a recipient of a 2009 Indiana Youth Investment Award from the Indiana Youth Institute. Only ten Indiana organizations -- over 200 were considered -- received recognition for exemplary youth programs.
There are no fees for Wellspring’s Summer Day Camp and free transportation is provided for approximately 60% of the kids.
