In my last video update—I mentioned that exciting opportunities were in store for our Coniston Community.
I told you about Community Days. You heard almost 3,500 visits were made to Camp this summer.
Even though we closed our normal operations this summer, we didn’t let what we couldn’t do, stand in the way of what we could do. That is exactly the type of journey I’m asking you to take with us.
I’ve always tried to care for every kid at Camp. This project is just an extension of that philosophy.
Through funding from the State of NH, Coniston is starting a virtual tutoring program. Our first cohort will be New American, middle and high school-aged students from Concord. We need our community to step forward and serve as tutors.
Six years ago, we intentionally began to bring kids from this community, and others, to Camp. We wanted to ensure that Coniston looked like the state we’re in, and the state we want to live in. Now we are interested in beginning a program that may just light a path for all Coniston campers in the future.
Volunteering is open to everyone in our community. You can be anywhere in the world. All it takes to be part of this is access to a computer and to say “I’m in.”
Sessions will be on Zoom. We have a staff member who will help orient you. Her name is Izzy Caruso.
English, Math, Science, Social Studies—we need folks who can be matched with students needing help with a variety of subjects.
So click here. It will lead you to a google form. There you can give us information and Izzy Caruso will contact you.
Coniston needs you. Our community needs you. Campers THEY need you. Please.
I’ll be back with even more good news soon!
