Dear Parents/Guardians,

Kuumba Academy will offer a Summer Enrichment Camp. We strongly encourage that you consider sending your child to our camp.  The camp consists of a six week program from June 24th-August 2nd.  Participating in the Summer Enrichment Camp will prepare for the next school year. Summer Enrichment will offer wonderful opportunities to inspire curiosity through hands-on, curriculum-aligned learning. It also provides a unique opportunity to cultivate the curiosity, confidence and motivation that students need to become life-long learners. Our highly specialized and certified teachers, teaching artists and specialists have planned hands-on lessons. The best part is your child will be learning through the ARTS!

Our Summer Enrichment Program will offer the following programs this year:

  • Springboard Summer Intensive Reading Program
    * Eliminating summer reading loss with significant and lasting reading gains for the next year
  • *Develop parents as teachers by training family members as reading coaches through weekly workshops focused on reading skills (Wednesday mornings)

  • Swimming (Water Wise- lifesaving water safety skills)
