Each year we send over 600 children and their families through our various seasonal camps. Most of these children have come from Philadelphia and New York City, providing, in many cases, a dramatic environmental shift. This has given us the opportunity to connect with our kids in a meaningful and low-stress way, with many of them coming back year-over-year.
Beginning in 2021, Streamside has re-committed its mission statement to focus on the local community present in Monroe County, PA. This has taken the form of an after school program as well as day camps and local retreat weekends. Our after school program serves 50 children and their families on a daily basis, with a specialization on the Latin American community. This gives us the opportunity to provide critical services such as ESL courses, career development, finance classes, spiritual counseling, and more – all for free!
