2023 United Learning Summer Camp
The United Learning Summer Camp offers an affordable in-person summer learning experience to students who will enter grades 1-8 in the fall. Our goal is to provide a fun and engaging educational experience for campers through a combination of on-site academic activities and enrichment. Each camp week features hands-on learning, both on- and off-site in partnership with several organizations and businesses related to the week’s theme at no extra cost. We strive to provide a camp that fosters curiosity, academic enhancement, and social/emotional skills that enables students to develop the scholastic and social/emotional skills they need to thrive year-round.
- – All camps are open to students in grades 1-5 except weeks 1&2 are open to students in grades 1-8.
- – Camps run 9:30am – 2:30pm daily.
- – Please note that eligible grades refer to the grade that the child entered in the 2022-2023 school year. Children must have completed kindergarten to be eligible for our camp.
Our goal is to provide programming that is inclusive, culturally-sensitive, and trauma-informed. We strive to prepare students to become accountable, socially-minded and globally competent leaders in their communities.
