Summer Opportunities

Colleges, high schools, nonprofits, and local communities host hundreds of different summer camp options.  These camps provide meaningful learning opportunities for elementary and middle school students to try out careers, explore new topics, be creative, and promote skills like independence and organization that help prepare them for life after high school.  High school and college students gain valuable work experience to compliment their academic life.   CapCAN encourages families to check out summer camp options early and ask about financial and transportations assistance.
