Approximately 100 people attended a “closeout” event on July 26 at Macedonia Baptist Church in Heathsville to celebrate another successful year for the summer camps offered by Macedonia Community Development Corporation, Inc. (MACorp).

These camps are the Girls Empowerment Camp (G.E.C.), which concluded its 10th year, and Camp S.W.A.G. (Success While Achieving Godliness) for Boys, which concluded its 5th year. Both camps are for youth ages 11 to 18; 36 young women participated in this year’s G.E.C. and eight young men participated in Camp S.W.A.G.

Both the girls’ and the boys’ camps are designed to build positive self-images in youth by offering workshops that teach life skills through educational and cultural experiences.
