CWES After-School Camp Program 

 
Summer camp fun doesn't end in August anymore!  
 

CWES was recently awarded a large three year grant to start a seven month camp-themed after-school program for local kids.  This project includes Rosholt, Iola, Amherst and three sites of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Portage County (BGC).  A total of 200 kids in grades 3 through 6 will be able take part in this during the 2016-17 school year. The program is free and takes place at each school or BGC location. 

 
 Students who previously participated in the program are eligible to attend again! The topics will be different and new activities were added to each program.
Another bit of good news is that the 25 kids enrolled at each site will have the opportunity to apply for a partial scholarship (25%-75%) to attend a six day camp at CWES next summer, with at least 30% of students at each site receiving partial scholarships. To be eligible to apply for a scholarship, kids need to attend at least one session of the after school program and submit a registration form.
