One Bottle One Dream & YMCA Summer Camp

Tampa – Wednesday July 7th – This summer, The Bob Sierra YMCA, as part of their summer camp program, is offering G.I.V.E Camp. G.I.V.E. stands for Get Involved Value Everyone. Children are taught that one person can make a difference when it comes to sustainability and community service. As an example local author Stephanie Armenia was on site to introduce her ‘One Bottle One Dream’ Recycling Project www.OneBottleOneDream.com. Armenia says her goal is to ensure each child understands that their environmental choices matter and have a direct impact on our earth. While reading her book, “When Will We Be Recycled, Momma?” campers take a recycling vow, empowering them with the appropriate knowledge and action skills they need to keep plastic water bottles out of our landfills. Each camper was gifted a book as part of the G.I.V.E Camp.
The goal of this camp is to also teach children the value of helping others and changing the community in a positive way. Partnering with The Sustany Foundation www.sustany.org G.I.V.E Camp has dissected sharks, visited Davis Island Sea Plane Basin for a clean up project, created recycled art projects and toured an organic farm.
A second G.I.V.E. camp for ages 9-12 is scheduled for August 8-12. For more information contact Sarah Morris, YMCA Childcare and Camp Director at sarah.morris@tampaymca.org or call 813 629-9404.
