Camps are an essential component of GEAR-Tech-21. For youth, they are a fun, intensive way to begin each year of their GEAR-Tech-21 experience. For club leaders, camps help to recruit club members, to bring youth with varying degrees of experience to a more similar level and to develop group unity and cohesion. The excitement youth take from camp helps generate parent support and commitment. For your club or program, hosting a camp can also be a great event to publicize your program to local media and connect with donors to your program. Camp programs highlight the curriculum for the coming year of GEAR-Tech-21 and are available in both Year 1 and Year 2 formats.
Each year, GEAR-Tech-21 is able to share some of our grant funding with local camps to defray participant costs. Contact GEAR-Tech-21 staff to find out how we can support your camp.
