Student Enrichment Opportunities

Student Group - Summer enrichment

As we can all recall from our youth, summers go by quickly.  However, they can also drag on without some direction.  We want our students to remain engaged over the summer, and some ways they can do so is through activities, camps, or work.  As you talk with your student, try to encourage him/her to make the most of their time. 

We have money set aside to help students with an enrichment opportunity (up to $500/student).  While many overnight camps are much more expensive, students can also look at discounts or scholarships for students with financial need.  Here are some ideas you can a pass along as you help your student make a plan for summer!
