S.T.A.R. SUMMER CAMP
At our S.T.A.R. Summer Camp, we provide children with a safe and nurturing environment for them to do what they do best – be S.T.A.R.S. (Students, Takin' an Active Role Scholastically). They have the opportunity to play, relax, and enjoy a light yet healthy lunch and snack before classes begin. The philosophy behind our after-school program is to provide a balance between structure and flexibility while simultaneously helping them to further explore who they are and what they like to do. To do this, we support them in their efforts to define their “YOU” factors - self-esteem, confidence, creativity, humor, compassion, empathy, responsibility, and initiative. Our after-school program runs Monday through Thursday at our New Horizon center.
The goals of our S.T.A.R. Summer Camp are the academic improvement of our scholars and to build engaging relationships. We meet children where they are in their reading and help them to learn to read at their reading grade level and beyond. Everyday our scholars participate in our summer camp, they have the opportunity to engage in Ministry Mondays, Literacy Workshop, and Youth Recreational Activities.
