Gilcrease Teams Up with YMCA to Serve 1,600 Kids

Summer GO Program

For the second year in a row, Gilcrease participated in the YMCA of Greater Tulsa’s Summer GO program. Located at Wright, Cecilia Clinton, Clinton West and Gilcrease elementary schools, students spent half the day working on core subjects and the other half focusing on the arts, science, technology, engineering, math, nutrition and coding.

Gilcrease on Wheels provided a 45-minute program that included learning to lasso, dressing up as cowboys and cowgirls and handcrafting bolo ties all while learning about the museum. Reaching 1,600 kids during the past two summers, this program has allowed Gilcrease to further its relationship with Tulsa Public Schools students, many of whom have visited Gilcrease through Any Given Child first grade field trips.
