RWA Celebrates A Great Summer
With 50 students in this year’s 5-week program, RWA and its largest summer class explored the Rockaway peninsula and beyond.
From Rockaway Beach to Jamaica Bay, Riverhead Aquarium to Liberty Science Center, Gateway National Park, Brooklyn Grange and more, RWA packed its summer program with fun educational experiences. Add in some surfing lessons, kayak and bicycle trips, and barbeques from their urban gardens, and you’ve got a recipe for a whole lot of happy campers.
RWA Program Manager, Blaze Jones-Yellin looks forward, “We had an amazing and enthusiastic group of students in our program this summer, and we plan to build on this momentum. RWA hopes to see many more Rockaway youth come out and participate in our programs this fall.”
This coming fall, RWA will offer two afterschool programs for Rockaway youth. Information and registration forms for RWA’s fall afterschool Shore Corps and Urban Planning programs can be found on their website, www.rwalliance.org.
