Mindfulness gets all the bad things off my mind, and it is peaceful. Sometimes I think about how to breathe.

Daily Discoveries

CAN's #1 goal in literacy is to help campers develop a love for reading. When young people see themselves & others expressed in story, they are more likely to be self-motivated to keep reading and practice writing to share their own stories.

At every CAN location, students receive diverse, high-quality, nutritious food in our educational programs.

Interwoven throughout every program is a culture of role modeling mindfulness, resilience, and healthy interpersonal relationships. Campers are given the language and tools they need to navigate the social world and better name and manage their emotions.

Social-Emotional Development
