Camp Changemaker

2021-01-15T11:07:05-06:00

Camp ChangeMaker educates youth about serious issues in our community and what local nonprofits are doing to find solutions.  We will visit local organizations and non-profits to gain an understanding of the purpose of their organization; how it operates, who they serve and why they do so.  We will also help with a hands-on project so each camper will walk away with the knowledge on how they can share their time and talents within our community. Camp costs includes a t-shirt.  Participants bring their own lunch each day.   Here are some examples of the many great places we visited last [...]

Shelby’s Childcare Experience

2020-07-06T13:59:12-05:00

Shelby Hartung noticed a difference in EmBe’s childcare from the moment she met the downtown location staff. “Everybody felt like friends. That was the biggest experience we had on our tour.” Hartung discovered EmBe shortly after moving from Bismarck, North Dakota.
