was a jammed packed month for us here at Sesame Flyers. As your will
see in this edition, our Beacon programs and Summer Youth Employment
programs were in their final month. We geared up for our Fall
programing and were in the heart of the Mas Season. Thanks to the
efforts of our dedicated members, staff, and volunteers, Sesame
Flyers has the capacity to consistently and effectively support our
community with quality programs and opportunities for cultural
expression and pride.
This past summer, the
Vault at the SFI Bildersee Beacon hosted 275 youth participants for
its free Summer Camp program. This year’s theme was “80s At The
Vault”, which honored African American celebrities, music, and
entertainment culture. Summer Camp participants ranged in age from
5-13 years old and came from many different neighborhoods throughout
Brooklyn. Summer camp was in operation from 8am to 6pm from Monday
through Friday. The children enjoyed various activities facilitated
by 16 adult staff and more than 50 SYEP workers. Daily activities
included: Cultural Dance, Hobby Quest, Steel Pan, Web Design,
Creative Arts, Physical Education, Science and Current Events.
Participants also enjoyed free trips to Luna Park and Active Kidz
Long Island. On the final day of camp, participants performed in a
1980s theme showcase followed by an outdoor barbecue. After a fun
filled active summer, our participants, their parents, and the Vault
community now are excited for our Autumn programs to begin.
With a big move to
another building, the SFI Winthrop Beacon staff, participants and
parents had no idea what to expect for the summer. Our hosts at P.S.
235 welcomed the Light House with open arms and helped to make the
transition very smooth. Our participants had excursions to the
African Burial Ground, Prospect Park, Central Park, and Brooklyn
Bridge Park. While on site at our temporary home away from home,
Light House participants were able to make battery-powered airplanes
and learn magic tricks thanks to Hobby Quest.

“The Legacy” for the 2018 West Indian American Day Carnival Parade

some of the most memorable and iconic Carnival presentations
throughout our award winning legacy on the Parade route. While our
Masqueraders were styled in some of our best costumes ever, months
of planning, practice and rehearsals were finally displayed in our
dance presentation for the judges in front of the Brooklyn Museum.
Sesame Carnival’s Vision 150 was the largest dance presentation ever
in the history of the West Indian American Day Carnival Association
