The Issue: Children Left Unsupervised During Summer

When families can't afford safe summer activities for their kids, many of these children are left unsupervised during the break from school. Camp experiences keep children busy, safe, and active and can help them build confidence, social skills, and leadership qualities.

The Campaign: Send Kids to Summer Day Camp

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then the YMCA of Arlington can sponsor four kids aged 5–12 so that they can attend a week of summer day camp. Day-camp activities rotate each week, but include arts and crafts, outdoor education, and group games, plus swimming two days a week. Each additional $50 raised will be used to provide another two days of summer day camp for a child.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
