LifeMoves | Summer ACES Adventure Camp is a seven week on-site camp for homeless children at LifeMoves family shelters in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Stemming from our year-round ACES programming which aims to engage children in fun science, technology, engineering, and math activities, Camp also incorporates weekly field trips to parks, museums, and sporting events across Silicon Valley and the Peninsula. The summer ends with an all-out Math Festival and Field Day event, complete with face painting, educational games, a photo booth, and a bounce house.
The camp is staffed by volunteer high school students, who serve as Camp Counselors, and college interns, who serve as Camp Directors, all of whom are supervised by LifeMoves employees. Each year’s team of Directors and Counselors dedicate thousands of hours to create a supportive and exciting summer experience for campers.
