Summer Bridge Camp
During the week-long program, students are divided into small groups of 10-12 and paired with a trained facilitator and a school/agency chaperone. Each group spends time engaged in hands-on Literacy, S.T.E.M., and Service Learning that focuses on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math); an hour a day in waterfront activities (swimming/canoeing/kayaking) and three hours a day in leadership, team building, and problem-solving activities. The opening and closing evenings include campfire circles focused on values clarification and celebrate accomplishments. Students also engage in their choice of several recreational and S.T.E.A.M. activities for an hour each day along with daily restoration activities (stewardship of their cabins, the dining room, and the wash houses) that are designed to teach responsibility and community.
In 2021, Summer Bridge will be offered as a day program only due to Covid-19 restrictions.
