SUMMER LEARNING

SUMMER ACTIVITY GUIDE

Summers are for fun and engaged learning. The Summer Activity Guides were developed to help engage youth with supportive adults in a range of places. Originally designed to accommodate COVID-19 summer, we hope that the suite activities and challenges will help young people learn and thrive in the summer of 2021 and beyond.
