For the third summer VOICE has had the opportunity to partner with the Corsicana Housing Authority to offer a no cost summer day camp to residents.

Summer Breakout is being offered June 10 through Aug. 15 to children in Kindergarten through eighth grade who reside at Northwest and Eastside Apartments in Corsicana. Children at both locations have had a great time participating in crafts, healthy cooking projects, sports, music, fitness activities, and group games.  Decision making skills and goal setting are being taught by VOICE Prevention Specialists using the Kids’ Connection Curriculum.

Community members have volunteered their time to help with activities and to read to the children.  Summer Breakout is every Monday through Thursday. Each Thursday has been designated “wet day” with a water slide or another outdoor water activity.  A healthy lunch is served to the children Monday through Friday at both locations. Aug. 12 will mark a combined birthday party for all of the children with a piñata, cupcake decorating, and party games.  

Throughout the year VOICE staff holds several special events with the children of Corsicana Housing Authority including a fall festival, a holiday party, a spring party, and an end of school celebration. For more information about VOICE and their programs and services visit the website at www.voiceinc.org or "like" VOICE on facebook.
