Collaboration -- among university programs, people-- spurs National Youth Sports Program
The Case Western Reserve chapter of the National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) has committed its agenda to helping Greater Cleveland children get or remain healthy during a five-week summer camp.
Over 400 children ages 10-16 are taking part in the NYSP camp, in session now through the week of July 7.
NYSP is celebrating 40 years on the national level, and the university's chapter will mark its 38th year on campus with an open house beginning at 10 a.m., June 20 in Strosacker Auditorium. Campus community members are invited to come out to watch a video presentation, tour educational and athletic workshops, hear testimonials from several NYSP alumni, and interact with the camp's children and staff.
The NYSP camp is a collaborative effort involving dozens of people and programs from the Case Western Reserve community. Over 50 students, alumni and employees assist with the NYSP camp in various capacities, including charting and tracking health issues, and serving as academic lecturers, camp counselors and administrative supporters.
