We are currently looking for motivated and enthusiastic people who enjoy working with children, to help us run our summer camp program. The summer of 2015 will be our third summer running these camps. This is a paid position that will take place Monday-Friday mornings and afternoons. The summer camps begin in mid-July and run until the middle of August. It is an amazing and fun opportunity to get involved with, and give back to the Albany community.
Anyone who is interested, should contact Joy at firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible.
The youth program began in the summer of 2013 with the support of The District Attorney’s Office and partnered with CrossFit Beyond.
The mission of the camps are to provide health & fitness to over 200 children at multiple locations, while providing a safe environment and promoting a lifestyle filled with fun and healthy fitness. Trainers from CrossFit Beyond hit the streets and parks to teach CrossFit movements, Olympic lifting, and basic body weight movements through obstacle courses and fun games. Ages of the children range from 4-17 years old.
The program, provided by the DA's office, was established to help youth, their families, and subsequently their communities face the challenges of life in a positive, healthy, and productive way. Leading our youth to be healthy, and strong members of our communities.
The program has worked with such organizations as The Girls and Boys Club, Brighter Choice Charter School, Albany Park and Recreation, St. Anne’s Institute, Girls Inc., Samaritan Children’s Center, The GWU Center, PAL, Albany Police Dept., Explorers, Trinity Alliance, Equinox, Albany Housing Authority and the Enough Park Programs.
The Summer of 2015 will mark our 3rd year
