SPORTS

PEACE Basketball   Children learned the fundamentals of basketball while improving their skills at any level in a fun and safe environment thanks to their top-notch curriculum.

Grassroots Tennis & Education  Children learned the rules and skills that make tennis such a fun sport to play. Children also focused on character building exercises to ensure success on and off the court.

Bobby Valentine’s Sports Academy  Children built character and improved their skills across sports such as soccer, baseball, softball and lacrosse.

NATURE

Stamford Museum & Nature Center  Children used science, math, literacy, and art to explore the nature around them. We tied animals, authors, and art together through stories while meeting some of the animals from our center.

SoundWaters  Children explored the Long Island Sound habitat through meaningful science experiments and adventures. They assessed water quality and learned about the kinds of animals calling Long Island Sound home.

ART

Arts in CT  Students participated in a variety of custom arts integration programs like Wacky Science, Prancing Majorettes, Visual Arts, Fashion Design, Arts and Crafts, Edible Arts, Tumbling, Contemporary Dance, Hip Hop, and Voice Class.

TECHNOLOGY

Happy Code  Through experiential learning, students learned about game designs and robotics and incorporated their own ideas into coding. By relating these technology concepts to the games and devices many children already use, we use 21st century skills to inspire students potential future careers.

MUSIC

Project Music  Children received an introduction to band and music through the introduction of a diverse array of instruments. From there students learned about instrument technique, how to read music, and the art of composition.

INTEMPO  Children gained exposure to instruments such as percussion, guitar, and ukulele. Children also learned how to move their bodies to Latin American dance as well as how to digitally produce music (middle school). In addition to music, students were also supported with academic enrichment in literacy and STEM.

STAMFORD YMCA  Stamford YMCA’s summer program engaged students in activities that support their physical and emotional development including sports, arts & crafts, dance, STEM activities, and swim lessons. Campers develop intangible life skills that include negotiation, collaboration, and active listening.
