I Gotcha Back SEC (Summer Enrichment Camp) Information

Through experience and data from implementing past IGB offerings, we know that short, interesting, and engaging programs can have a meaningful impact. The summer program offers a Curriculum, Experiences, and Activities to enhance young people’s development. Our daily programming will include Critical Thinking, Communication skills (interpersonal, self-advocacy, conflict resolution), money/financial concepts (age appropriate), Emotional Wellness (1:1, Curriculum, Group Counseling), arts and crafts, board games, and physical activities. Our Critical Thinking/Problem Solving, Communication, Financial, and Emotional Wellness curriculum will be developed and delivered with the oversight of licensed educators and professionals. We will also incorporate weekly field trips (Examples: Cade Museum, Harn Museum, Dudley Farm, Santa Fe Zoo) to allow our students to experience various cultural and historical settings to enhance their knowledge and understanding.
