Many students have a difficult time adjusting to a new school. Our students often face hardships at home. Norwood has a 70% free or reduced lunch rate. The camp assists the kids in being knowledgeable and capable to handle the changes and challenges that come their way. We currently do not have a way to pay for the 2013 Transition Camp. Funding from the Give For Youth Platform would help bring our vision for transition camp to a reality. We have done the camp for the past 5 summers and it has been extremely successful. On a post camp survey, last year 100% said they felt very or extremely knowledgeable about how to stay away from alcohol and drugs. 94% said they knew who to ask for help if they need it. The funding would be used to provide the students with the necessary skills to be successful for their futures. The funding would pay for camp materials, prizes, workshop providers, gift cards for older students who provide leadership, and quality speakers to make camp possible.See Idea Details remind me
