Empower Yolo summer camp programs:
Empower Yolo Kids Day Camp at the shelter –
Kids Day Camp at Empower Yolo’s safe house is an 8-week program packed with fun activities for the children staying there during the summer. Campers will have the opportunity to play, create, and explore while in a safe and supervised setting by Empower Yolo’s trained staff. “Camp allows children to experience activities that they may not have access to outside of the safe house. It allows positive social interactions and allows the children to develop strategies to navigate social situations and empower them to make decisions,” – Natalia Villagomez, lead child advocate, Empower Yolo.
The community can support Empower Yolo’s Kids Days Camp at the shelter by donating snacks, water, outdoor toys and activities, gift cards for lunch, or sponsor a fun Friday for the kids like movie tickets and tickets to local community pools. Donations can be made at Empower Yolo’s Davis or Woodland offices during office hours. For questions about donations contact Natalia Villagomez at [email protected].
