Kids run club gets 21CCLC recognition

Active SWV Kids Run Club has teamed up with two awesome youth organizations to provide the most diverse afterschool programming around.

Check out what we’re doing with Coda Mountain Academy and Camp ROYAL this year!

ACTIVE SWV SUMMER CAMP
This July, Active SWV is doing a SUMMER CAMP for Fayette county students who were in 3-8th grade this past school year. There will be two sessions – July 12th-16th and July 19th-23rd from 9-3pm at the Fayette County Park. Camp is free to attend, but space is limited so students may only participate in one session, not both.
Campers will learn teamwork and outdoor skills along side academic pursuits like journaling and mathematics. Activities include teambuilding exercises, games, stand-up paddle boarding, biking, Leave No Trace training, and more!
Registration is now closed for 2021 Summer Camp, but stay tuned for more information about our fall Kids Run Clubs and other free activities coming up!

About our program

In 2020, Active SWV received a 21st Century Community Learning Center award in partnership with Coda Mountain Academy and Camp ROYAL. With this funding, our three organizations are able to provide a new, free, and diverse extra-curricular opportunity to at-risk youth for five years. This includes fully funding two new Active SWV Kids Run Clubs. 

Between this partnership, students can participate in Kids Run Club, Lego robotics, visual and performing arts, biking, scootering, and skateboarding every week!

This partnership of programs support students’ academic needs by stealthily integrating math, science, reading and writing in to activities kids love. All activities are beginner appropriate. As part of our 21st CCLC commitment, we’re proud to also offer programs and resources to families throughout the year to encourage stronger more trusting relationships between youth and the adults in their lives.

Our 21st CCLC Kids Run Clubs and partner activities are held at Fayetteville Pre-K – 8 and Oak Hill Middle School.

In addition to our 21st CCLC funded clubs, Active SWV also offers Kids Run Club programs across 6 counties. Learn more about how to start a Kids Run Club at no cost at a school in your community here.
