SparkCamps Summer Fun in 2021 Comes to a Close
Our inaurgural SparkCamps program for Summer 2021 has come to a close as Yuma students return to the classroom. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank campers, parents, grandparents, and community members for making our first summer camp program successful. We also couldn't have had such fun and success without the dedication of our camp staff Camille Castro, Olivia Donnelly, Noami Martinez, and our volunteer Peyton Kahl.
SparkCamps were supported in part through generous funding from the Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma, the Flinn Foundation’s AZ Creative Communities
Mini-Grant for small and rural arts and cultural organizations and administered by the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the Arizona Game and Fish Department K-12 Mini-Grant, and additional arts and culture funding from Arizona Community Foundation.
We hope you enjoy the following photos taken during three of our camps in June.
