South Boston Outreach Summer

South Boston Outreach Summer (SBOS): PBHA’s SBOS provides a summer day camp for young people aged 6 – 13 from the Old Colony, Mary Ellen McCormack, and West Broadway public housing developments in South Boston. SBOS strives to empower youth through hands-on enrichment activities that emphasize academic confidence, conflict resolution, interdependence, prevention of risk-taking behaviors, and respect for diversity. Campers attend camping trips and field trips to explore their own community as well as the larger city around them in order to understand their own ethnic heritage and to appreciate the diversity of Boston. SBOS utilizes substance abuse prevention and service-learning curriculums to support the academic achievement and positive youth development of our 50 campers.
