Archery is Awesome!

Hello Friends of Camp Imani;

Your donations are still at work.  Imagine 7 weeks of free camp for 120 inner-city kids.  The Campers love it, and the parents cannot stop saying thanks. As Camp Imani comes to a close on Friday, 8/23 we will have letters from the kids themselves thanking all of you.

For the very first time we were also able to offer the kids Archery - an ancient sport rarely available to children in our community. It was a really big hit, helping them develop focus, skill, precision, cooperation and discipline. 

One Camper Mikalah has showed excellent aptitude for the sport, hitting the bullseye repeatedly and impressing Coach Brown, our Archery instructor, and the other Campers and Staff. 

We look forward to sharing progress as Camp continues. Please, feel free to tell your friends and family about us, and show them the significant impact your donation had on our camp and campers this summer.

Thank you.

Warmest Wishes,

Camp Imani is Up and Running!

Greetings All:

It’s the second week of Camp Imani and everything is in full swing! 

The Camp Imani kids have started things off by receiving their backpacks and t-shirts thanks to the funds you all helped us raise during our Global Giving campaign. The kids look great and fully prepared to enjoy an active summer camp experience.

We have also been able to rent busses that have taken the children to different activities such as the Bronx Zoo, the Prospect Park Carousel & the Brooklyn Promenade – all great ways to enjoy the weather now that is has cooled off.

We hope that in a few weeks we will have a special report featuring an all-new activity that we cannot wait for the kids to get their hands on.

Remember, we wouldn’t be able to provide these services without your support. It has truly made a difference in what we were able to offer the Camp Imani kids this year and we really appreciate all of your help.

Warmest Wishes,

Steel Pans Thanks to You!

Can't Wait Until We Can Hear the Children Play!

Greetings all:

   Let me preface this by saying that Imani House has been truly astounded by the outpouring of support that we have received for Camp Imani through GlobalGiving. Thanks to donors such as yourself we have been able to fulfill a goal that Imani House has been trying to complete for quite some time: bringing back steel pan drums for our children! 

Through the steel pan drums, our children will have access to the astounding effect that musical education can have on children’s math skills, mental reasoning abilities and reading comprehension.  Also, steel pan drums have the added benefit of introducing students to a great musical sound and experience.

With your support we have been able to secure a set of drums that will help our children spend their time at Camp Imani immersed in the rhythm of these great instruments.

 
Many Thanks for your support
