Making Tracks Academic Enrichment Summer Program

Organization: Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington

ACSGW recognizes that youth from low-income families may not always receive healthy, nutritious meals, and consistently score at the lower percentiles on academic tests. Youth deserve access to quality academic and vocational programs, and life-skill training to assist them in their journey towards adulthood.

Our mission is to help the disadvantaged and disenfranchised in the community to attain self-sufficiency and independence, and deliver programs that serve youth and their families in the Silver Spring, Takoma Park, and other East Montgomery communities.

Making Tracks Academic Enrichment Program is a nationally recognized Montgomery County summer program conducted by Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington (ACSGW) and its community partners. It is our signature program that complements other ACSGW youth development and education programs that occur throughout the year.

The 6- to 7-week camp provides elementary-grade participants in East Montgomery County with a safe and positive environment to engage in vital academic instruction, hands-on visual and performing arts classes, a wide range of fitness and recreational activities, and essential life-skills training. Participants receive daily breakfast, lunch meals, and take-home weekend food packages (Smart Sacks). On any given Friday we hand out food to make 1000 meals.

Over 450 elementary-age students have been served to date in East Montgomery County at elementary school sites. Our principal partner, Montgomery County Recreation Department, coordinates the registration and selection of eligible participants for the summer camp.
