Second Summer of Newark Riverfront Day Camp

For six weeks starting in July, 55 young people experienced day camp along Newark’s riverfront and a blend of arts, environmental justice, sports, and recreation. Newark artist Kevin Sampson, lead muralist for Song of the Passaic led arts workshops, and Saman Dashti of Grupo Liberdade de Capoeira led capoeira classes.  The Network, a citywide organization, oversaw sports and recreation. Over the six weeks, Ironbound Community Corporation provided core staff, tents, tables, and supplies. Special shout-out to Essex County Parks staff for daily set-up!
