Enrichment Programs

SBCO Enrichment Programs Support Kids Summer Camp, Breakfast and Lunch Programs for Local Students in 2021
by Nancy McCluskey-Moore
SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) has again funded a grant request from the Mammoth-San Manuel Unified School District Community for a summer enrichment and sports camp.
This very successful program was awarded a $7,000 grant to cover the cost of supplies, cleaning, two field trips and play equipment. The school district will provide $2,000 in funding for the program. The camp will be open to students aged four to 12 enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade and living in Mammoth, San Manuel, Dudleyville, Reddington, or Aravaipa.
Some students will be enrolled in summer school in the morning for a variety of activities, including art, cooking, games and sports, while other students will participate in a morning sports camp. In the afternoon, sports camp will be provided to the students who spent the morning in summer school.
All students will have the opportunity to participate in the school’s free summer breakfast and lunch program. The goals of the program are to: Reunite students after months spent in isolation due to the pandemic Increase student confidence and a sense of accomplishment through group activities Keep students active beyond the regular school year. Between 60 and 100 students are expected to attend the camp to be held from June 3 through 30.

During the 2019-20 school year, a total of 86 students will receive SBCO scholarships, 75 for four-year degrees and 11 for two-year degrees. Scholarships are provided as long as the student has a full course load and maintains the required GPA.

This year, a “second chance” scholarship was approved for students who failed to meet grade requirements during the first year, but subsequently demonstrated a commitment to their education.

To date, many scholarships have been awarded to students attending the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, Central Arizona College and Pima Community College.

The photo above shows five of the 2019 high school students receiving their awards from SBCO President Steve Groth.
