EMPOWER Summer Camp Opens at the Summer Moore Center

An Awesome Summer Camp Experience!

Greenville, NC, June 11, 2021

Easterseals UCP, in partnership with Trillium Health Resources, is excited to announce the opening of our inclusive camp that serves campers with special needs and their siblings.

EMPOWER
Engaging and Motivating People through Opportunities
in Wellness, Education and Recreation

The opening of this meaningful community summer program is an expansion of our EMPOWER afterschool and summer programs at the Summer Moore Center in Greenville, NC.

Summer Moore CenterThe Summer Moore Center, formerly the Summer Moore Child Development Center, has been directly connected to the community since it opened in 1992. The original space was renovated to ensure it was accessible and could serve children and families with all abilities during summer camp and afterschool care.

Beginning June 14, 2021 and running each weekday through August, our EMPOWER summer camp will serve children preschool age 3 through 5th grade with opportunity to expand our ages in the future.  Our camp will offer full days of fun activities that include trips to the local splash park, taking nature hikes, learning yoga, going bowling, creating art, enjoying music and movement with the East Carolina School of Music, rhythmic drumming and enjoying playground time – all supervised in a fun and safe environment for each of our campers! Our standard staff to camper ratio is 1:3 and we can also provide a 1:1 ratio when needed.

The EMPOWER summer camp will run until August, when children return to school in Pitt County. At that time, our EMPOWER afterschool program will begin for children that need care beyond a typical school day.

Easterseals UCP is committed to serving families in Pitt County. Our goal is to nurture social connections and cultivate a community of acceptance for all children and young individuals. In addition to camps, we offer foster care, community living services, in-home skill building, respite care, employment services and residential programs in Pitt County.

We are still taking applications! For more information about EMPOWER camps including eligibility requirements, please contact Donna Griffin at donna.griffin@eastersealsucp.com.
