Countdown to Camp: Phipps Neighborhoods’ Summer Learning Camp starts on July 6th!
This year, our Summer Learning Camps will serve 1,000 children – the most ever at Phipps Neighborhoods – with the theme of “Building Global Citizens: Past, Present, and Future.” Each camp site will research a different international city to serve as the foundation for a summer of experiential learning. Phipps Neighborhoods’ Summer Learning Camp will reduce summer learning loss through structured programming that will enhance and support academic achievement, strengthen 21st century skills, and build a foundation for children to become future leaders and global citizens.
Our Summer Learning Camp will be built on project based learning, with campers choosing the subject matter and demonstrating their new understandings through a variety of projects or presentations about their chosen topic, developed in alignment with the Common Core. These activities will all be integrated with traditional arts and recreation activities that help to define the summer camp experience.
