Summer Partners

2020 Summer Camp

This summer we launched our virtual summer camp in partnership with the Summer Learning Academy! We provided four weeks of virtual academic instruction, enrichment and fun.

Students created space stations (below) and owl trees during our 21st Century-led enrichment activities. (Left) Students even used Oreos to represent the phases of the moon!

Our partners Girls at Work provided students with incredible home Build Kits that let them experience the empowering Girls at Work program from home! Students built bird feeders, planters and a Wish Upon a Star box!

Students received books courtesy of the CLiF Foundation and kits with materials for crafts and activities from 21st Century!


The Manchester Community Music School provided movement and music activities to our students that kept them moving even while at home!
