The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our community’s health and well-being at unprecedented levels, causing major disruptions for people of all ages and walks of life. While we are all weathering this storm together, the effects are intensified for families with children at home. Children struggle to understand the change of schedules, and they miss their friends. Parents struggle balancing work, homeschooling, and home commitments. CLC has adjusted programs to continue meeting the needs of our participants.


CLC has developed stimulating and engaging programming that will operate for 6 hours daily , Monday - Friday. Activities include virtual field trips, physical activity, reading, writing, reflection and journaling, math and coding! Youth programming will be conducted with in-person, energetic camp counselors and use of interactive virtual platforms. While hugs and handshakes are not scheduled to be a part of MARVEL*US this year, happiness and fun rank at the top of the list! 


Now, we need your help! MARVEL*US summer camp will be starting soon. Our goal is to allow all interested children to virtually attend. You have the power to provide necessary items and experiences to attendees. Your generous gift can give children the opportunity to have fun, learn, create and explore while staying safe and healthy!
