Across the community, we’re striving to influence the direction of our school system to provide a more quality and equitable education to all students.  Remnant also affords youth opportunities to expand their horizons, elevated life’s trajectory, and work towards achieving their gifting through camps, activities, and other sponsorships opportunities.  The information contained within this site outlines the progress in a number of ongoing community activities. Join us in this year’s 2017 Go…Get Your Gifting Campaign where we are setting the bar high in expectations and accomplishments.

Again, this year we offered competitive summer camps for kids (ages 13-17) where our youth truly soared and saw what was possible, with unlimited possibilities.  The Southern Maryland Aviation & Career Camps 2017 were opportunities for imaginations to soar beyond the bounds of routine and imagining dreams of their future.  Astronaut Mae Jemison, the first black female in space, once said: “Never limit yourself because of otherslimited imagination.”
