Summer Day Camp Mission
To provide children who have completed grades K-6 a safe, fun, and thrilling adventure through recreational and enrichment programming. We aim for every child of Summer Day Camp to develop strong positive social bonds and friendships with peers & Summer Day Camp staff .
Why We Need Your Help
The Summer Day Camp program has no reduced pricing for economically disadvantaged families. Therefore, many children go without educational opportunities, supervision and structured activities to bridge the gap between school years. The CSISD Education Foundation would like to provide scholarships that cover a significant portion of the camp tuition with a small, buy-in from the family. Summer Day Camp:
- provides positive role models
- gives students a safe environment
- provides educational experiences
- bridges the summer gap academically
- fosters team building and supportive relationships
- supports working parents
- reduces the risk for adverse childhood experiences
“I was so thankful to have a place for my daughters to go in the summer where they felt welcomed and safe, had someone to look up to, could make friends, have fun and learn. I’m a single father so it’s challenging to juggle work schedules with summer care.”
- Alex McCain, dad to Amaiya & Aiyana
