GHC to host 11th annual free summer Foundation Camp for boys this June


 

Applications are currently being accepted for the 11th annual free Foundation Camp for boys between the ages of 10 and 14, presented through a partnership between the 100 Black Men of Rome-Northwest Georgia and Georgia Highlands College.

The two-week camp takes place on the GHC Rome campus and starts on Tuesday, May 31, and lasts through June 10th. Foundation Camp is free, but has a limited number of spaces available that are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Transportation within Rome’s city limits is also provided, including a free breakfast and lunch.

Foundation Camp is one of several partnerships between the 100 Black Men of Rome-Northwest Georgia and Georgia Highlands College. It focuses on academics, athletics and enrichment courses intended to build self-respect and confidence, and to allow the young men to experience college. 

To apply or for more information, contact Jon Hershey at jhershey@highlands.edu.

GHC's Foundation Camp is possible due to the generosity of donors and the GHC Foundation.
