Students Pursuing Academics, Resources and  Knowledge

Summer day camp for rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade students preparing them for transitions to high school and beyond.

Due to COVID-19, we were unable to hold Camp SPARK this summer. We want to make sure that we are still serving our middle school kids so we are doing a backpack giveaway.
Parents of children going into grades 6, 7 and 8 in the fall in Grayson, Carroll or Galax may apply for free supply-filled backpacks (1 per child). Please use the link below to apply. Paper applications will be available for those that cannot access the link. They can be picked up from Krista Manuel, Community & Family Support Assistant, at the main agency location. Please be sure to apply in the child’s name.
Eligibility will be determined by income.
