The Little Warriors Camp began in 2013, because of the generosity of the Boeing Employees Community Fund in San Antonio. The Little Warriors Camp is specifically for children of military. During the summers of 2013 and 2014 the campers received 140 hours of prevention education. We have taught a total of 114 kids in all. They learned about self-esteem, assertiveness, and how to make good decisions. They enjoyed activities like hip hop dance, puppetry, and a field day. Besides all of the fun the campers also received FREE school supplies! This program is one of the ways we support military families in San Antonio.
I really hope you will have this next year my children already want to come backLittle Warrior Parent
The Little Warriors Camp is designed to help build leadership and teamwork skills by providing age-appropriate activities to include interacting with kids that have shared similar experiences. The Project Heart curriculum provided an excellent fun, educational program for kids of military families to learn valuable coping skills, a stronger sense of self-confidence as well as build a support network with other children. The camp helped to reinforce relationships and strengthen the family core.
My kids wish it was longer than just a week.Little Warrior Parent
For many of our staff, this year’s Little Warriors Camp was their first experience. We witnessed during the beginning of both camps, many of the kids did not want to participate in the Hip Hop class because of their shyness or dislike for dancing. As the week progressed, they began to enjoy it more and were commenting that they loved the Hip Hop class which made our team of assistants smile. A handful of the younger kids in the first camp loved it so much that they showed interest in joining HYPE but they did not meet the minimum age requirement of 11 years old.
We learned so much from all the kids involved in the camp; they inspired and motivated us to stay passionate about the work that we do because of the difference it makes in in so many of their lives.
The kids are up earlier than me because they are ready to go to Little Warriors CampLittle Warrior Parent
One parent told the team about her struggle as a Veteran and dealing with PTSD. She appreciated us working with her daughter and how her daughter felt comfortable with staff. Originally this parent had plan on staying with her daughter for the day since she did not know anyone. However by lunch time her daughter told her (parent) “its ok mommy I am having fun you can leave…” Also she mentioned that her daughter would talk about the lessons they learned for the day such as talking about feelings and know how to make choices for herself and not what her friends want her to do. “This camp helped give my daughter a voice and self-esteem that she needed. I just can’t believe the positive change I see in her.”
I can’t get them to leave they have made some friends here at campLittle Warrior Parent
