Create a future in which you live well is the idea behind Taking Back The Future camp
(MEMPHIS,TN-April 19)Taking Back The Future summer camp is innovational learning offering tools for living well. Kids will learn habits for living healthy and building wealth, as well as prepare to navigate a future more globalized and technology-driven than ever. Expect boundless fun but a limited number of spaces due to COVID-19 safety measures. The two sessions are limited to 15 campers ages 12-14.
Tarik Black Foundation’s Taking Back The Future focuses on four concepts: Healthy Habits, Wealth Creation, Global Diversity and Technology Impact. “We want to elevate young people’s understanding of the world and prepare them to thrive in the most important aspects of life. This has always been our focus. Taking Back The Future is how we are connecting the education we offer with the world’s new reality,” said Judith Black Moore, Tarik Black Foundation (TBF) president.
To achieve its new programming goals TBF in collaborating with a host of experts including LeBonheur Children’s Hospital, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis Light Gas Water, along with international knowledge contributors at Nike Innovation in Tel Aviv, Lyfta – an immersive global education platform headquartered in The UK and Finland and a host of other subject matter professionals. Even kids have contributed their ideas and insight as part of a youth advisory group.
Church of the Holy Communion in East Memphis is generously providing space for the three-weekly in- person camp days. Two days will be camp-at home (virtual). Activities will involve exercise physiology, chess classes, wealth creation; global “fieldtrips” and adventures that take campers behind-the-scenes to explore technology in a variety of industries including athletic shoe design.
Session One is June 21 – July 9. Session Two is July 11 – 30. Read more about Taking Back The Future summer camp including cost, COVID-19 safety measures and how to apply.
