The Pinedale Aquatic Center and Friends of PAC are grateful to the Wyoming Community Foundation for providing grant funding to support the Little Wrangler Day Camp this summer. Their dollars help keep the Camp affordable and staffed with well trained counselors. The Wyoming Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works with donors to support the charitable causes they care most about. In 2021 the Wyoming Community Foundation granted over $7 million to charitable causes across the state. For information call 307-721-8300 or visit their website at www.wycf.org.
The Pinedale Aquatic Center’s Little Wrangler Day Camp started on June 5, 2022 and served over 115+ elementary aged children throughout the summer. PAC offered three different camps to meet the growing need for childcare for elementary students in our community. This year campers participated in many different activities. Campers were able to explore the outdoors on hikes and at local lakes, visit the Sublette Center and participate in activities with seniors, visit local businesses and services for tours, join in on the fun at Trader's Row, engage in STEAM based activities that allowed for learning while having fun, and so much more! Their curriculum has been carefully crafted to provide joy and learning simultaneously. While the participants think of all this as summer fun, the Camp also provides a critical role to our community, ensuring a safe, flexible, and enriching childcare environment that allows many parents to continue working while school is out.
The Friends of PAC nonprofit organization was created to secure supplemental funding for the PAC and its important programs as county revenues decline. The board is working hard to identify new partnerships and collaborations that will benefit the PAC.
