Students in third through eighth grades can take part in a free summer program hosted in partnership by RISE, Inc. and the Winters Joint Unified School District.
The registration period for the RISE summer camp is now open. Applications are available in the offices at Shirley Rominger Intermediate School and Winters Middle School, as well as in the RISE, Inc Winters office. There is no cost to register, and applications are due to the Winters RISE office by June 4.
The camp is scheduled to run in two sessions at the Rominger school site. The first session is from June 15 to July 1. The second session is from July 11 to July 29. The summer camp day is expected to run Monday through Friday from Noon to 5 p.m.
There are spots available for 80 students in third through eighth grades. The program is open to any youth who fall in that range who live in Winters and the Winters JUSD area. The camp, however, is not exclusive to just Winters JUSD students.
Brandon Villegas, Mental Wellness Specialist and program coordinator, said he is also looking to bring in Winters High School students to serve as mentor leaders for the program. The final details on the mentorship roles are being worked out and more information will be released soon.
Villegas said he is looking to include more walking field trips and visits to the City Pool for camp attendees. This is the second year RISE is hosting the summer camp.
A Parent Information Meeting date is in the works. Villegas said it should be happening before the beginning of the first session in June.
