This Summer Programs Guide provides a listing of 2017 camp programs available throughout the city to your children ... and to you! Through fun and engaging activities and programs, your children will be learning while they're having fun. Keeping our children engaged during the long school break helps to avoid summer learning loss that often puts our children behind academically when they return to school in the fall. Some programs are free or very low cost, some have optional extended hours, and some accept vouchers and have transportation available. Most provide lunch and a snack.
Take time to read through the guide for information about all of the programs and all of the details, including program locations, hours and registration requirements (contact information is included). There are programs for all ages and interests. Swimming, arts and crafts, sports, reading and healthy activities will ensure that your children are having fun while keeping their minds active. There are also academic programs to keep middle and high school youth on track for graduation.
Make the most of the summer break by preparing your children for school while they are having fun, making new friends and increasing their learning skills at the same time!
Printed copies of the guide will be available starting the week of May 8 at the Springfield Public Schools Parent and Community Engagement Center, 91 School Street, Springfield, and branches of the Springfield City Library.
