Give back to the community


Service Organizations

strive to make social change to improving our environment and society. These organizations often take the form of initiating projects or participating in community service events. Philanthropy is important to us and we try to give back to the community through not only volunteering but also creative thinking.

The highlight of the club is putting on a week long summer camp full of nature, activities, and friendship.
