Summer Update: MACC Lit
This year is an election year and our goal was to enhance kids U.S. government knowledge and develop a care and concern for their country and the way it is operated.
For the five week MACC Lit Summer Camp (MLSC) learning detectives were able to establish their own government and pass laws. The kids voted to name our country Golden Gates of America Country with two states, Number One Super State and Daisy Meadows and hold elections for president, representatives, senators and governors.
As part of studying U.S. Government we were honored with a visit from former City Councilwoman Shelia Cockrel and enjoyed a field trip to the State Capitol Building. During our trip in Lansing the learning detective were able to investigate and learn more about the history of Michigan, see where state laws are passed and walk around the Governor’s office. We hope and pray these lessons and activities foster a desire to be active in their community and political processes.
We are so grateful to Pure in Heart Missionary Baptist Church and Pastor Clayton for providing their building for our camp.
We give much appreciation to our teen helpers Desha, Chyann, Angeligue, Saleen and Arzhanae, Assistant Summer Camp Manager Ashley Albright, volunteers Peter and Joseph and to parents for chaperoning our field trips and entrusting their kids
to MACC Lit staff.
And lastly, Greening of Detroit for teaching our kids about gardening and insects, Gleaners (Meet Up and Eat Up) for providing free lunches and to all other supporters of MACC Development.
After another great summer we are excited to begin the fall semester again!
