Each year for almost two decades, Communities In Schools of Jacksonville has offered summer camps to keep local students engaged in their academics throughout their extended time out of the classroom. In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – and with our staff and students’ health in mind – we’ve made the decision to hold this year’s camps virtually.
While we would love to be able to see our wonderful students and campers in person, safety is our number one priority. We are working hard to ensure our students will experience the same level of academic enrichment so that they can start the next school year off right. See below for more information, and please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
As we finalize our plans for camp, we simply can’t overlook that many of our campers need some extra help ensuring that their basic needs are met. With this in mind, we’re aiming to supply backpacks to all of our campers this year. Please see our Amazon Wish List at the link below and consider contributing to help fill a backpack for a student in need.
Please consider taking this short survey that will help us better understand your family’s needs during this time. This will help us to bridge the gap and provide necessary assistance to those who need it.
All campers must be current students of schools in the Duval County Public School system to participate. Our summer camps are free of cost.
