Summer is nearly here!
Please find attached MAPP's Summer Camp Brochure. It was intended to go home with students in last week's Friday packs, but I don't believe it made it in!
In addition to what you see in the brochure, MAPP will be offering a "Healthy Communities" component to support the special summer school program in Weathersfield. Principal Oakman distributed that info last week, but please let me know if you'd like me to forward that as well.
Thanks ... and please don't hesitate to contact me with questions/concerns.
MAPP is a community-based public health coalition committed to creating environments of healthy choice in order to prevent illness.

Two days of skills building, with Dover Youth to Youth
Over the past 10 years, Dover Youth to Youth has become nationally recognized for its capacity to develop leadership and life skills in its members while impacting the environment.
Youth to Youth seeks to empower youth to take on community issues by:
• providing students with information and helping them research the needed background information on an issue, allowing them to form a point of view;
• providing them with the skills to take action to change something that they are not satisfied with, and,
• creating the opportunities to put those skills to work in order to create change.
Two days of outdoor leadership: one day of rock climbing and one day of kayaking
The focus is on noncompetitive, team-based activities that free youth to have fun, gain skills and build self-confidence.
