Free Summer Fun for Local Youth at Cambridge Health Alliance's Inaugural Everett Teen Camp
Posted Date: 7/20/2012
Everett, MA…This July marked the inaugural Everett Teen Camp: For Youth by Youth, hosted by the Cambridge Health Alliance's Everett Teen Health Center at Everett High School. The free camp, which ran the week of July 9th, was open to all youth in Everett entering the 6th, 7th, or 8th grades. All week long, 22 campers participated in a wide range of fun activities, from sports and water games to arts and crafts! Thanks to very generous donations from local Everett businesses, campers at the Everett Teen Camp enjoyed a delicious lunch buffet from Oliveira's Restaurant and a pizza party sponsored by Nana's Pizza. They flew through the sky on Sky Zone trampolines and learned cool self defense moves from Bill Powers and Nick Cerio’s Kenpo Karate!

Six students from the Empowering Youth in our Community and Helping Hands at Work programs at Everett High School led the camp, where they taught campers games and crafts and showed them around the high school. The camp counselors learned leadership skills and received 31 hours of community service for the week. "Being a counselor has made a wonderful impact on me as an individual," said Kelsey Rosemond. "The experience was really fun!"

The Everett Teen Camp and Cambridge Health Alliance would like to thank Everett Public Schools, the Everett Parks Department, Oliveira's Restaurant, Nick Cerio's Kenpo Karate, Nana's Pizza, and Sky Zone Sports for all of their generous donations which helped make the camp such a success. The Everett Teen Camp is incredibly grateful for the Everett community's help during its first year.
