For decades, Parks & People has sought to achieve a single goal: to improve the quality of life for residents of Baltimore by ensuring that everyone is connected to nature through vibrant parks and green spaces. 

Our hope is that, when people — adults and children alike — are given the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and mix and mingle with neighbors, they will become stewards of these very important green resources.

That is why we offer SuperKids Camp, a six-week academic enrichment program designed to help elementary school-aged students in Baltimore City improve or maintain their scholastic skills during the summer months. We focus our efforts in the following areas — reading, environmental literacy, character development, basic math skills, and fostering an appreciation of the environment through hands-on learning and field trips.
