Baltimore City is launching its B’More Summer Information Hub, a website centralizing and cataloging thousands of summer programs, events, and opportunities for the City’s youth and their families.
The Hub website, maintained by the City’s Office of Children and Family Success, will include, but is not limited to, information regarding more than 22,000 summer learning slots at Baltimore City Schools, and camps held by Baltimore City’s Department of Recreation and Parks, Enoch Pratt Free Library, and nonprofit providers. Baltimore City Mayor Brandon M. Scott emphasized the City’s need to increase youth resources in a press release:
“Our young people deserve access to safe, affordable, and engaging opportunities during the summer months,” said Mayor Scott. “From starting their first job and learning new life skills through programs like Youthworks to building new friendships at one of the thousands of summer camps in the City, summer is a time of exploration, growth, and new and exciting adventures for Baltimore’s young people. It is also a challenging time for many of our youth and families struggling with food insecurity and lack of opportunity. We are connecting young people and families to incredible summer opportunities and expanding efforts like Summer SNAP to provide meals to thousands of young people.”
