2015 Advent Summer: College Trip, Camp Carter, Fee-Based 1 Week Summer Program
Advent had an eventful summer 2015!
One Beloved Community Mentoring Programs:
Our middle/high school aged 1BC groups met all summer, this year will be our 5th year with most of these youth! They are all becoming amazing individuals and we are so proud of them! Special thanks to the mentors that show up weekly to love these youth!
College Tour 2015:
We took our high school students that are a part of our One Beloved Community and SWARM after school programs on a college road trip. This road trip was planned to give our students the opportunity to see, hear, feel, experience, and get info about their college choice! We visited UT Austin, University of The Incarnate Word San Antonio, Texas A&M Corpus Christi, and Texas State University. A beach condo was our home for the week in Port Aransas, TX. Thanks to the Southlake Womens Club and Art In The Square, this trip would not have been possible! Please support Art in The Square in the Spring of 2016!
Camp Carter 2015:
Middle school students that are a part of our One Beloved Community and SWARM after school programs, got to attend Camp Carter for three days in August! This is our 4th year taking youth to Camp Carter! Without Summer Santa, this years camp would not have been possible!
Fee-Based Summer Program 2015:
For our second year in a row, Advent has hosted a summer program at Major Cheney Elementary. 18-20 students came everyday and got three meals, recreation time, computer time, reading time, and educational game time! We were able to partner this summer with A Chance to Learn to offer summer learning to 3-5 year olds. It was a great summer with lots of field trips and fun! A Huge Thank You to Major Cheney, BISD, and Birdville Baptist Church for allowing us to have this program!
