SAY Play Summer camp adventures!

More than 150 campers are joining the SAY Play team for a summer full of adventure and learning during the 2023 SAY Play Summer Camp. Campers enjoy activities ranging from dance, art, fashion design, gardening, STEM classes and sports. And last week, the students had the special opportunity to attend a Better Together event, led by Darryl Woods. The event educated campers on empathy, respect, and understanding between law enforcement and youth to make everyone safer.
