Gina Argento, President of Broadway Stages and board member of YMCA Greenpoint, believes that recreational activity and student enrichment programs are crucial pieces of positive youth development. As a financial contributor to the YMCA and YMCA sponsored events, Gina's active participation directly supports outreach programs and summer camps.
The YMCA Camp Spirit Day brings together young campers at its annual celebration to showcase spectacular musical and dance talent performed at the end of its summer program. This year's spirit summer theme was "Myths & Legends" with participants from student-named groups "Trolls," "Be Our Guests," "The Rhythm," and "Zuka Zama." Each group performance taught campers about the importance of teamwork and helping one another.
YMCA events like these help provide students with artistic enrichment that is essential to creative development. By promoting creative expressions in the form of dance and music, the YMCA allows young campers to enjoy themselves while exploring their artistic talents.
Gina's contributions also help maximize community participation at the YMCA by providing families with free memberships. Focused on improving recreational activity outreach and participation, Gina dedicates her resources to provide every child access to recreational activities that will benefit their mental, social, and physical growth.
