Getting Back to the Basics Camp: volunteers needed

30 volunteers are needed for the Getting Back to the Basics (GBTTB) – 2014 Annual Enrichment Camp.  The goal of camp is to empower students at Asheville Middle School in making positive life choices that will maximize their social and academic potential. This effort is made possible, through collaborative programming with schools and other community-based organizations.

In addition, we provide educational, social, and mentoring opportunities to enhance the academic performance, community connections, and career options of the family.
The camp starts July 13th - July 18, 2014.
GBTTB Enrichment Camp is a week-long camp for Asheville Middle School students, which offers them the opportunity to learn responsibility, build self-confidence, and develop leadership skills. These services must be delivered through a variety of auditory, visual, emotional and experiential activities which include:

1.      Professional and dining etiquette training
2.      Confidence building (high and low ropes course)
3.      Skills/Team building
4.      Financial management / camp fire cooking / the power of your voice
5.      Outdoor and water sport activities

Water sports activities consist of whitewater rafting, swimming, fishing, as well as team building activities.  Student’s who complete camp will be assigned a mentor for one year.
If you are able to volunteer, please contact me via phone or email:
