Letter: Thanks from Eagle River Youth Coalition

The Eagle River Youth Coalition extends a sincere thanks to everyone who attended our annual Summer Camp Expo. This year we had companies come from across the state to share their program offerings, from science camps to internship and job opportunities. We are so grateful for all the participants for taking the time out of their busy days, as well as our longtime supporters and sponsors, Slifer Smith & Frampton, the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health, Eagle County Schools and SAMHSA Drug Free Communities. In conjunction with this expo, we hosted a one-day Families In Action Workshop where 50 participants navigated the teenage years and learned effective, honest communication.

If you were unable to make the event, please reach out to any and all of the providers who are committed to the youth in our community. Thank you to Avon Recreation Center, Alpine Arts, 4H/ CSU Extension, Defiance Rafting, Eureka McConnell Science Camp, Endorphin, Eagle Climbing + Fitness, Eagle County Dept. of Human Services, Eagle County Sheriff’s Office and Vail Health Think First, Early Childhood Partners, Fossil Posse Adventures, Girl Scouts of Colorado, Mind Springs Health, MIRA Mountain Recreation, Our Community Foundation/Eagle River Food Pantry, Rocky Mountain Youth Corp, Roundup River Ranch, Solo Colorado, Trio Therapy Partners, Walking Mountains Science Center, DentaQuest, Women’s Empowerment Workshop,  YouthPower365, Wells Fargo, Zealous School.

These community partners show us that youth continue to be a priority and, together, we are making a difference.
