About us
Teaching what we learned

Camp S.E.N.A.H. is a virtual camp that creates a space where children can lead and be their best selves. Children have the opportunity to lead their peers through their own talents whether it's painting, building LEGO bots, running track, or improv. They can simply be themselves. This camp will be a safe haven to simply just "be you!"

FROM THE FOUNDERJenelle M. Hanes

https://campsenah4life.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/linkedin-icon-1.png

 

My name is Jenelle Hanes, Principal Owner of Just BE, LLC, and founder of Camp SENAH 4 life. Most recently, Just BE has partnered with Future Mountain Movers, Inc. This partnership allows leaders to serve children from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Camp SENAH offers our K-6th graders thematic camps, including STEAM and entrepreneurship during fall, winter, and spring breaks. Our Ag-Tech programs serve our 5-12th graders through the Thyme 2 Grow Curriculum year-round. These programs introduce, expose, and implement hands experiences that value agriculture, technology, and leadership in our communities. It’s important to know that Black-owned farms make up less than 2% of all farms in the United States, and African Americans represent less than 10% of the tech industries. We would like to increase the number of African-Americans represented in professions with agriculture and technology combined. Agriculture is predicted to be a $40 billion industry by 2025. We believe that early exposure to such programs will increase the college enrollment of African Americans and increase competitive applications and scholarship opportunities.

Moreover, our greatest desire is to position participants to compete in these industries, or industries of their choice, while building financial growth and stability. We are proud to have committee members with more than 20 years as educators, accounting, human resources, and curriculum design. We also offer internships for college students.

Over the past three months, our programs have grown from summer institutes to year-round programming. This fall, we will begin preparing our community garden. Our youth will design and build planter boxes, set up methods for measuring and growing seasonal vegetables, learn the importance of inventory and necessary accounting skills. We will use technology as a tool to monitor plant growth and production as well.

Finally, it’s our tradition that we finish every session or event with a mantra. We emphatically state that “WE WILL BE GREAT!” Making this statement out loud is our affirmation for the children to know that we believe in their ability to achieve greatness, fulfill their aspirations, and offer their skills to their community!

My greatest desire is to boldly influence other educators and stakeholders to genuinely invest in the lives of children from conception to adulthood.
