Camp Phoenix, “All Work and No Play…?” NO WAY!

Camp Phoenix makes math, reading, and literacy fun. When math work is done, time to play learning board and card games; reading and literacy,
Mad Libs to learn parts of speech. The children can even earn computer playtime once they complete their lessons. #math #reading #literacy #madlibs #allworkandnoplay #noway #chestereastside

Math and Art at Camp Phoenix

Math and art – what a great combo. The campers measured their bodies on brown wrapping paper, then decorated them. Thanks to Ms. Me’ira from Congregation Beth Israel of Media for the special class.

Thoughts for the 4th of July

Thoughts for the Fourth:
“America is known as a country that welcomes people to its shores. All kinds of people.”
— Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“I want to see young people in America feel the spirit of the 1960s and find a way to get in the way. To find a way to get in trouble. Good trouble, necessary trouble.”
— John Lewis
