Our summer day camp program is designed for Upper Primary school students with the objective of engaging students and exciting their curiosity. Along with arts and crafts, theater and music, this program provides experiential learning to aid understanding of otherwise abstract concepts in math, science and English.
By providing exciting activities and a free lunch, young people are cared for and meaningfully engaged during their long school break. Evidence shows children that participate in the summer program perform better at school when they return in September.
Join us in our 3-week program this August. Space is limited to 6 volunteers. Each volunteer will lead a class that they will develop with our assistance and conduct with the help of our Path students.
