SUMMER CAMP FOR MPYD MEMBERS

Summer is quickly approaching! For many families, summer is just time away from school with a constant search to find entertainment to keep our youth occupied and out of trouble. Mentoring and Partnership for Youth Development (MPYD) is proud to offer our students a summer experience that will provide fun and lasting memories at the 11th Annual MPYD Summer Camp. Our young men will have the opportunity to get away from the city and connect with nature. Please consider making a donation to sponsor summer camp and help our students enjoy a very memorable and developmental experience.

Our summer camp this year is from June 29, 2015 through July 2, 2015. MPYD will provide meals, lodging and transportation for an entourage of approximately 50 people, including MPYD students, alumni, mentors and staff.

Oakbridge Camp is just a few miles away from San Diego in Ramona, California. During the camp, the students participate in team building activities, workshops, discussion groups and fun. It is an opportunity for our staff and mentors to spend quality time with our young men that builds trusting relationships, which is effective in mentoring throughout the school year.

Summer camp is the highlight of the year that many of our students look forward to each year. Your donation will enable MPYD students to reconnect with nature, increase their confidence, and develop skills that will last throughout their lives.

I hope you will consider making a contribution toward sponsoring our 2015 MPYD Summer Camp at Oakbridge Young Life Summer Camp Facility. You may donate online through PayPal at this website.

Thanks in advance for any contribution that you may be willing and able to make.
