This is the introductory blog post from the Full Circles Foundation Lexington Summer of Solutions program! Grand Aspirations is sharing blog posts from our local programs to keep the powershift community updated on our work.
Full Circles Foundation Lexington has begun talks and preparations for 2013’s summer program. As we enter our second year, we are so excited and thankful for the success of our inaugural year. In less than a year’s time we were able to build a program for Lexington middle school girls encompassing curriculum for a strong self, a healthy earth and a fair economy. What did we do? Everything from self-defense classes for a strong and prepared self, a photography project to build local pride in our community, to trash to treasure micro-ventures to support camp finances, and even swimming in a creek at a local nature reserve. Our summer was filled with community building and memory making for instructors and campers.
Full Circles Foundation Lexington will begin 2013 with a camp reunion for instructors and campers. In January, our girls will be going rollerblading to reconnect and plan for 2013. We expect to have a solid retention rate from last year’s campers, and look forward to new faces during 2013’s summer camp.
