Spanish and African Dance. The 2002 Summer Mind Camp was a summer enrichment program offered to the children of the Selma City and Dallas County School Systems. The program provided students with academic support in math and reading , while introducing them to French, Spanish, African Dance and Black History.

C.A.R.E. is a non-profit organization that provides academic and instructional support to many schools throughout the Black Belt.

According to C.A.R.E. director and coordinator of Summer Mind Camp, Lydia Chatmon, “We chose Clark Elementary as the school we would go in and help with the students because they were most in need of academic and instructional support. The principal, Mrs. McCall was the most receptive of all the elementary principals in the Selma City School system. We are pleased we can help.”

During the school year, members of C.A.R.E. work with the students, using RISE 10-Point Plan and the Professor B High-Powered Math Program.
