What Our Sports/STEM Summer Camp Offers
Men of Valor and Purpose (MVP) is a nonprofit that uses sport as a way to mentor young students, we will host a 2020 Summer Camp which is being held in partnership with Ever Increasing Life Online & Councilman At-Large Calvin Hawkins. The goal of the camp is to provide a demanding and competitive learning experience for youth. The Camp seeks to inspire and to prepare the next generation of youth to live healthy lifestyles, and to develop positive characteristics that are necessary for success in life.
The 2020 Summer Virtual Enrichment Program is a 4 day long camp (from Monday to Thursday). The MVP Sports and STEM Enrichment program was designed to offer increased sports participation to elementary school students with the intent to prove the positive effects on academic, social and emotional well-being. Education has become a critical issue in this nation. Laws have been enacted to address this issue, such as; Every Child Succeeds Act (ESSA). However, laws such as these have not been able to deal effectively with the growing problem.
The Summer Collaboration will include MVP, BSU students (Bowie State University) and Longview & Associates. Participates of elementary grades will learn how sports can involve interesting STEM related projects and activities. They will also see how sports can enhance the use of drones and STEM activities relevant in a variety of ways, such as: tracking weather, monitoring the velocity of a game, and observing climate change. Sports are much more than a physical activity outlet, they also present exciting and challenging real world STEM principles, like physics and aerodynamics, sports biomechanics and kinesiology, as it pertains to player performance. Moreover, many sports-related careers are STEM specific, including statisticians and sports therapists, among others.
This is a chance for your child to build relationships, develop teamwork and leadership attributes, and have a great time!

Challenge for Schools
Although schools can help with reaching the nationally established goals for children’s physical activity, physical education (PE) has been given a low priority compared to academic subjects and has been reduced in many U.S. communities.
(National Association for Sport and Physical Education, 2006)
After-school programs are viewed as an appropriate alternative setting for offering children the recommended amounts of 60 minutes per day of moderate-to-vigorous levels of exertion. Currently about 7 million children attend after-school care in the U.S., with a demand of approximately 22 million.
(Afterschool Alliance, 2004)
(Strong et al., 2005)
I trust these counselors. I appreciate that I see the same faces every year in the counselors and the administration. These people love their “work”, their camp, and these kids.
My child has always been treated fairly and with a tremendous amount of respect – that says it all.
I like that it’s small and rustic, not so commercialized like many have become.
I like the variety of activities and the staff.
