"A Camp Experience Changing Lives"

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the lives of Americans. With unemployment at historic highs and children in need of even more support and enrichment than ever before, Beyond The Natural Foundation is offering a modified format to summer camp in accordance with the State of Maryland and CDC guidelines.

 

Thanks to the generous support of the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and Baltimore Summer Funding Collaborative, Beyond The Natural Foundation (BTNF), in collaboration with Magic Minds, Inc. and Stillmeadow Community Fellowship church, has created a tuition-FREE summer camp experience to provide high-dosage enrichment programming where youth get to learn positive ways to express themselves through musical art, collaborate on projects that create community, enhance their critical thinking and writing skills, and decrease summer learning loss. 

 

During this summer camp experience, youth grow musically by learning Songwriting, Beat Making, Music Production, Piano, Drumming and Vocal Performance while exploring the fundamental aspects of rhythm and harmony. Campers get to develop academically through progress-driven academic instruction for the upcoming school grade in Mathematics, Reading Comprehension, and Language Arts subject areas. Since BTNF summer camp is designed to be one of the most transformative experiences a child can have, campers get to have fun with other enrichments like Beekeeping, Bird-catching, and Nature Exploration in Stillmeadow Peace Park.

 

To be a resource to our communities, BTNF’s modified camp offering is only for 20 prospective campers residing in Baltimore City whose parents or legal guardians have either been unemployed, furloughed, or experienced a 50% reduction in work hours as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents/Guardians should scan and email or forward email communications from their employers reflecting this information to info@beyondthenatural.org.

In all efforts to be compliant with CDC guidelines as it relates to social distancing and other safety measures, our modified camp experience will be split into 2 cohorts of 10 campers: younger campers in grades 2 – 4 and older campers in grades 5 – 7. The camp schedule will follow an “A-Day B-Day” format where younger campers attend the Stillmeadow campus on Mondays and Wednesdays, and older campers attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Fridays, camp will meet in a virtual format for all campers for a half day.
