A collage of kids having a blast at WIN's 2024 summer camp.WIN’s summer camp is in its third week. Kids ages 5 – 12 from around the Beekman Corridor are meeting new friends and engaging in activities to negate summer learning loss.

This year, the camp curriculum is focusing on sustainability. Kids are learning about how they can do their part to conserve. Campers are also learning about our monetary system and how to make good financial choices.

Constance Evans, the granddaughter of camp founder Marilyn Evans, is partnering with teen counselors and representatives from outside organizations, to provide engaging summer learning programs and fun activities. The Wave Foundation is one of those partners who enlivened the afternoon by bringing Suzie, a 7-year-old African penguin to WIN’s campus. Kids were able to observe Suzie and learn about her habits and habitat. Other organizations collaborating with WIN to bring new learning opportunities were the Ensemble Theatre, and the Ohio State University Extension. There are many other great activities planned for this 8-week program including a trip to the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, OH.
