YC expands programming for youngest participants

Youth Challenge is focusing our 2019 outreach efforts on building relationships with our youngest participants. Sessions of our “Krazy Kamp” program have been extended year-round to better reach this group. The program, which serves children with physical disabilities between the ages of four and eight, will be offered every month this year.

August programs wrapped up with The Summer’s End Shindig at Avon Pool on the 31st. Participants and Volunteers had a wonderful time playing at the park, partaking in bubble art, competing in “YC Hoola Hoop Heist” and splashing around at the pool! The youngsters will meet next at the Harvest Fest on September 28th at the Brookside Shelter in Cleveland.

Special thanks to The Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation of Lorain County for funding the August session.

If you know a child or family who could benefit from YC’s programs and services, please encourage them to contact Mackenzie Vecchio, Program Manager, at mvecchio@youthchallengesports.com or call 440-892-1001.
