1. It is a fun and enriching environment for your students!
Camp City Year is a week-long camp that is created and run completely by corps members. This year, our students will go on a time warp to discover different cultures of the past through arts and crafts, games, music, and more!
2. Your students will meet a diverse group of students and corps members!
Although we serve in 14 schools in DC Public Schools, we love having students from every ward, every quadrant, and even from the larger DMV area! Last year, siblings and cousins of corps members from out of state even attended!
3. It is affordable!
Camp City Year has a $20 application fee for the first student with each student in the immediate family costing $5, for example, a family of 3 students would cost $30 to attend the week long camp. This includes programming from 8am to 4pm as well as breakfast and lunch. There are scholarship applications available upon request.
4. It is accessible!
Camp City Year will now serve at three Kindergarten through 8th grade camp locations! Two camps will be located in Southeast DC and one will be in Northeast DC.
5. Service learning starts early!
City Year’s values show the foundation of our organization, which also guide the way we incorporate the concept of service into our different initiatives. Not only will your campers be engaged in learning and fun, but they will have an opportunity to learn what community service means and partake in simple examples of service.
Camp City Year runs with the DC Public School’s Spring Break, April 2 – 6, 2012. If you have any questions or would like to request an application check here, call 202-742-5266, or e-mail CampCityYearDC@cityyear.org for more information.
