Bittersweet Conclusions

Is it just me or did this summer fly by? I can't believe we're already in wrap-up week. Saying goodbye to those amazing kiddos is so hard.

Thank you. Thank you so much for your incredible commitment to our students and families. We hope you had an awesome summer!





August 2-6: Wrap-Up Week

This final week, even though there will not be any campers, is an important week!

Staff can plan to:

  • Sort and organize leftover bin supplies, clean community spaces and prepare them for After School Programs

  • Reflect and share stories from summer camp for future newsletters

  • Write mini-camper bios for future adults working with the students and/or letters to teachers sharing what the campers did over the summer and advocating on their behalf so they start out on the right foot in the fall

  • Complete a survey and an exit interview with specific feedback on the summer camp training and summer camp experience

End of Summer Celebration at Cultivate Coffee & Tap House

  • Friday from 2-5pm

  • Come hungry for Potbelly's! Feel free to bring your own simple lawn or board games =) There will be corn hole!
