Summer Scholars Mini Camp in Review

Did you know that there were TWO SBSK Summer Scholars programs happening this month? In addition to our regular Summer Scholars programming in the St. Johns neighborhood, we hosted a Summer Scholars Mini Camp at All Saints Presbyterian Church in Southwest Austin!

For two weeks this month, Oak Hill Elementary School students enjoyed fun and educational games and activities centered around life skills, literacy, math, science, and social studies. We worshipped together, prayed together, and learned together! One mom shared, “At first, my daughter was nervous about coming to camp. By the end of the first day, she didn’t want to leave!”

Why have a second Summer Scholars program? This fall, Side by Side Kids will launch a new afterschool program at Oak Hill Elementary. We simply couldn’t wait until August to see those students’ smiling faces! Summer Scholars Mini Camp was a wonderful opportunity to connect with students, parents, and volunteers in Southwest Austin. We are incredibly thankful to All Saints Presbyterian Church and to all of the volunteers that made Mini Camp possible!

Do you live in Southwest Austin? We need your help! Even an hour with Side by Side Kids can make a difference in the life of a child. Visit our volunteer page for more information on how to get involved. We can’t wait to encourage hearts and inspire minds with you this fall!
