Mountain View Prevention Services has participated in Kids Kamp and
Challenge Week held each year at South Lewis Central School (SLCS).
These week long programs are held each summer and are based on the
Kids Who Win, Nine Winning Practices a curriculum developed by
Robert Newberry, Elementary School psychologist in the SLCS district.
Kids Kamp is open to children in 5th grade.
Challenge Week is open to students in 8th grade.
Kids Kamp and Challenge week are programs where children learn the
importance of dreams and aspirations. Every child has the capacity to
achieve his or her dreams and goals in spite of the challenges we each
confront along the way. Kids Kamp and Challenge Weeks are the building
blocks for many in making their own dreams come true. Mountain View
Prevention Services is proud to support this program.
