Promoting SUCCESS Act Introduced in House
On July 29, 2010, Representative Carolyn McCarthy (NY) introduced Promoting SUCCESS Act (H.R. 5963), also known as Promoting Students Using the Camp Community for Enrichment, Strength, and Success.
This piece of legislation would direct the Secretary of Education to carry out a grant program to fund pilot projects to explore how the camp experience promotes physical activity and healthy lifestyles among children and youth, reduces summer learning loss, and promotes academic achievement. The American Camp Association is working with Representative McCarthy to advocate for the passing of this bill.
Soon, there will be a call for action by asking the community to contact their legislators.
