EdGE Summer Camp Week 1 – Frogs, Photos, Forts, and Fun

EdGE Summer Camp Week 1 – Frogs, Photos, Forts, and Fun

CHERRYFIELD, ME — Thank you to EdGE Site Coordinator Jennifer Kearns for these photos taken the first week of EdGE Summer Camp 2020. As we’ve said before, this year’s EdGE Summer Camp is a much modified version of previous EdGE Summer Camps.

But even with a cap on Summer Campers attending under Covid-19 State of Maine guidance — the kids are having a blast learning new skills, sharing new experiences, and making new friends.

Here then is Jennifer’s collection of photos of first week EdGE Summer Camp kids on nature trails, learning photography, culinary arts, basic woods survival skills, and (of course!) how to make green slime.

Kids Out of Comfort Zones, Into New Fresh Food Prep, Tasting

Kids Out of Comfort Zones, Into New Fresh Food Prep, Tasting

CHERRYFIELD, ME — This photo taken at a recent EdGE Kids’ Kitchen Summer Camp show Rose M. Gaffney Elementary students outside their comfort zone, trying new foods, and learning cooking skills, food preparation, and cutting skills.

The Mission takes a multi-faceted approach to reducing hunger and the threat of hunger in western Washington County.

We know different populations experience different obstacles to obtaining enough food. The challenges a third-grader faces are not the same as those encountered by an eighty-year old.

Our food programs go beyond simply delivering quality food. Each program promotes social interactions, builds a sense of community, and encourages learning about nutrition, trying new foods, making healthy food choices, and talking about food and nutrition. We hope to impact area residents’ eating habits, including the next generation’s habits, in order to create a stronger, healthier, and more informed community.
