What’s a STRIVE Splash -N- Dash Camp?
A Splash -N- Dash Camp is a fun and fast-growing program that combines run/swim training to youth with the support of a Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative Grant awarded by the County Executive’s Office and Prince George’s County Public Schools. This after school program will provide transportation to the Allentown Splash Park where tutoring will be offered before camp.
This program delivers the tools needed to jump start a healthy lifestyle and introduces multi-sport events provided by STRIVE and the USA Triathlon Association. This is open to all ability levels in a controlled setting which encourages participation while delivering detailed instruction to campers. Upon completion of the training, campers will participate in a culminating STRIVE Splash N Dash Race Event to showcase the results of their training.
Youth will participate in a non-traditional program which provides academic tutoring, physical fitness training and a reporting component which monitors the campers’ progression. The STRIVE Splash N Dash Camp is being offered to 30 youths selected from Barnaby Manor Elementary School in 4th or 5th grade.
