Project Description: Camp Wings was a five week summer camp with an academic year follow on project that served middle school boys from low income immigrant families. Camp Wings was designed to engage these students in out of school time enrichment opportunities that are hands-on, experiential and fun. Aviation, STEM subjects, visual arts, teaching from professional artists and career development are some of the experiences provided that are usually beyond the reach of boys from low income immigrant families. Camp Wings worked with the Montgomery Housing Partnership to recruit boys, as well as additional recruitment from Silver Spring International Greenwood Middle School and Takoma Park Middle School.
