Brownsville Culture and Arts Camp needs students and volunteers this spring
About the Camp
The camp will provide a supportive environment for the children to comprehend, appreciate, and creatively express their growing knowledge about the history, culture, and environment of Brownsville – with local educators and speakers contributing to the curriculum and facilitation of each week’s theme. The end result will be a book, “We are Brownsville,” edited by Robin Reshard, longtime Brownsville resident and creative director at her business, Robert Robino Productions.
