In the summer of 2015 we assisted Brooklyn Jesuit Prep with their summer enrichment programming for their school students. We fully funded an overnight camping trip for the school’s 7th grade, and camping and a day of Outward Bound instruction for the school’s 8th Grade students at Fairfield University. The camping offered the students a nice respite from New York City and the busy school year to have fun and build community. The Outward Bound experience helped the Brooklyn Jesuit Prep students build leadership skills, and also focused on creative problem solving and team building. The students had a wonderful time and the experience will help navigate the increased expectations of life in high school.
