  • Think: How much would I otherwise spend for my child to go on vacation, to the movies, museums, etc this week?

What to expect:

  • Students should plan to attend 3-5 Zoom sessions over the course of 4-5 hours daily. 
  • Each day will consist of two bunk, or cohort sessions, a daily lesson and workshop, and time to work on a partner project.
  • Bunks, or cohorts, will be counselor-lead small groups that allow for more intimate, in-depth procession and discussions
  • The daily lesson and workshops will be led by skilled professional educators—a different set every day!
  • Partner projects allow students to have an opportunity to reinforce each day’s lessons around a topic of their choosing 
  • Though the program will come to a close by the end of the week, students will walk away with new connections, skills, and approaches to current events that they can take back to the classroom, conversations, and beyond.
