During the summer of 2017, YES provided access nature-based summer camps for 306 Richmond and West County low-income youth. YES also provided a series of Camp Days during spring 2017, designed to increase Summer Camp retention rates to 70%. The Summer Camp program now also includes a new program component, the Richmond Rangers, which is a collaboration with East Bay Regional Park District, and provides a cohort of 15 YES summer campers with twice-monthly day outings to a variety of regional parks, two overnight camping trips, and family nights over a period of ten months. Camp Days and Richmond Rangers activities provided youth with quality out of school time opportunities to access nature in their local parks, increase their sense of belonging with their peers and YES camp partners and got them excited to enroll in summer camp! Camp Days are hosted alongside East Bay Regional Park District and YES camp partners and will take place again in Spring 2018.
