This summer the BridgeBuilders community staff, along with a host of volunteers, have put on the S.A.F.E. Camps in Bonton. These camps have provided not only a safe and healthy atmosphere for the children of Bonton while they’re out of school, they have also provided instruction in numerous sports and activities. Additionally, every week there are focused days on character development and academic progress, and Field Trip Friday provides an opportunity to go to places like Hawaiian Falls and Flight Deck, an opportunity the kids may not get otherwise.
While the camps do provide a fun environment, ultimately the goal is the continue the positive work being done in the lives of the kids in Bonton during the school year through the After-School Program and the sports programs.
The summer has presented unique obstacles, specifically in the area of challenging the students to work hard. However, through the challenges we have seen transformation in the lives of the Bonton youth.
