The Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program of Franklin County (UMADAOPFC) is funded by ADAMH and has collaborated with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) to provide the Creative Me Summer Camp (CMSC) for children 5-14 years of age in the Rosewind community. The CMSC provided fun summer activities during the week, Monday-Friday, from 8:30 am-4:00 pm. Although UMADAOP is an agency specializing in alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention services, the CMSC provided Academic, Social Emotional Leaning (S.E.L./Life-skills) Recreation, Community Service-Learning, Field Trips, and Youth Led Prevention opportunities for students. The CMSC was an awesome eight-week summer experience that began June 10, 2019 and ended August 2, 2019. The following material is provided to give insight on scope of programming, and to share the students experience with you. UMADAOP- ... See more
Education: Students engage in Social-Emotional Learning (S.E.L.), ATOD learning, and academic/educational sessions throughout the summer. S.E.L. helps to increase their protective factors in categories such as classroom self-management, relationship skills, decision making, refusal skills, and optimistic thinking. ATOD learning educates students on the consequences of drug use and addiction. Academic/educational sessions help to prevent summer slide and also create areas of improvement for students. We are pleased to say, this years group has done a phenomenal job over summer at meeting their metrics. UMADAOP- ... See more
My dreams are to graduate high school, go to Columbus College of Art and Design, and become a fashion designer. No, life isn’t all about cloths and looking fabulous, but they matter. For example, if you walk into a job interview with sweatpants and a t-shirt, you are less likely to get the job then if you wore a button down shirt with dress pants or a pencil skirt. I want my cloths to tell people they have options. ‘Why settle for ordinary, when you can look extraordinary (copyright, this is my saying).” You can be you and be wonderful; I have wanted to be a fashion designer for as long as I can remember. Week one in camp was interesting. I met some new people and reunited with Allana who I went to school with a couple of years ago. Two people who have impacted me in a positive way are Alisheya and ELaya. I really didn’t want to make friends, I just wanted to stay with my brother. Alisheya and ELaya made me want to branch out a little bit more. Creative Me is different from other camps because we really learn more, and we actually develop and improve life-skills. Plus, we have better field trips! Camp at Creative Me is like school but better; we learn a lot of stuff to prepare us for the next grade level. The staff teaches important life-skills and helps us develop them. The field trips are super fun; the staff are inspiring and wise. Creative Me is different from other camps and this is why I like it so much. Amira (Mimi)- ... See more
I have many victories but the best 3 would be cheer competition, 5th grade, and good grades. Cheerleading competition because we got 2nd place but went up against some hard teams. 5th grade because a lot of people said I wasn’t going to pass and more, but I proved them wrong. Lastly, my grades, because I was so close. The most inspiring thing to me is my mom because she has taught me a lot of things and more to come. She told me you can do whatever you want, as long as you put your mind to it. Someone that has inspired me in camp is Ms. P because she is someone you can talk to, she’s fun, and very nice.
