The Mount Vernon Youth Bureau is accepting applications for its Safe Haven Summer Camp; one of the most affordable camps in the community for youth ages 7-13.

Youngsters can also become involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering &math) projects, which include the building of straw rockets and neat experiments, as well as the Girl Scouts. The camp offers two field trips per week to exciting places such as amusement parks. Each year campers experience trips to includeLakeCompounceand Sony Wonder Lab.
