In wrapping up 2023, we are looking at the numbers and are blown away by Ascend’s accomplishments this year – Ascend hosted 16 more days in wilderness than the previous year and served over twice as many youth!
This accomplishment is largely thanks to the launch of our very first Spring Break Day Camp (SBDC) in April 2023. This program offered outdoor education and adventurous day hikes to 60 youth, ages 5-14, during the week of spring break at no cost to families. SBDC also employed high school counselors during the week, providing adult mentorship and references as well as a source of income to teens during their time off from school.
Ascend wants to make sure to offer this excellent opportunity for youth in April of 2024!
During December, all donations to Ascend will go to supporting Spring Break Day Camp. Please consider including Ascend in your end of year giving!
