What kids in Kermit have over kids in Seattle

Here’s an article from earlier this week on the difficulty of finding, in Seattle, Washington, quality summertime programs for kids that (1) low-income families can afford, (2) help prevent loss of math and reading skills developed during the school year, and (3) provide some healthy meals.  This is a problem that’s far from limited to Seattle. 

We’re proud to point out that again this summer, and for the last 10 years, ABLE Families summer camp programs have addressed all three needs admirably. 

First, they’re free.  No fee for any child, period. 

Second, every one of them includes important and enriching educational elements.   For example, this week’s CSI Camp (at which the photo at right was taken, earlier today) has kids doing measurements of all kinds, developing new vocabulary, and doing plenty of challenging problem solving. 

Third, a healthy lunch is provided to every kid each day.

And man, they’re fun.
