A Look Back on an Epic 2016 Summer

As PCG Education is getting prepared for summer camp season, we wanted to look back at an EPIC Summer Camp from last year.

Last summer, in Louisville, Kentucky, students at Minor Daniels Academy (MDA) participated in PCG's EPIC Summer Camp program. PCG provided the "My Brother's Keeper" initiative, which addressed opportunity gaps faced by boys of color and ensured all youth can reach their potential. The students were pleased with their provided breakfast, lunch, and transportation to and from the MDA camp. They learned STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills along with team-building skills. Activities such as Paper Tower, involving students building a tower as high as possible only using paper, and the activity titled Wind-Powered Vehicles, involving teams creating vehicles that were powered by blowing air from their mouths, were some of the students' favorites. On the last day of camp, each student was given the opportunity to talk about an activity and discussed their opinions on STEM and team building. Best of all, students were able to take these skills back to school in August.

We look forward to hearing more great stories like these in the upcoming months.
