Green Gardening at Summer Camp!

Summer Camp at the YW came to an end as each site starts preparation for the school year. This summer, our kids explored gardens in the sunshine, took special field trips each week, and learned about health and nutrition from Cookshop by the Food Bank of New York City. Our students loved our summer programming, and we cannot wait to start back up in the coming weeks!
