The Expanded Learning Program’s Summer Camps!

The Expanded Learning Program is excited to offer 25 days of academically enriching workshops to students at Robinson, Bristol Elementary Schools.  We will begin programming June 29th and conclude July 31st, M-F, 8:00 - 12:00.  This year, as in years past, we will provide transportation to students, pick-up and drop-off.  Students will also be served a healthy breakfast and lunch provided by ANESU's Food Cooperative.  Here is a general outline of our schedule:

Students will rotate in small groups by grade through the following schedule:

These academic workshops are project-based with an emphasis on experiential learning.
8:00 - 8:30
arrival/breakfast/morning meeting

8:30 - 9:15
Fun with Literacy
Reading, writing, drawing, storytelling, games, acting, etc.
9:15 - 10:00
Fun with Math/Science
Numbers, strategy games, cooking, MAD science experiments, science fair, etc.
10:00 - 10:45
Fun with Wellness Coach
hiking, dancing, gardening, cooking, capture the flag, soccer, nature walks, etc.
10:45 - 11:30
Weekly Special
Each week we will have a special host that will teach an exciting week-long workshop.  One week it may be theatre; another week tennis taught by Middlebury college students,  etc...)
11:30 - 12:00
Lunch & Dismissal

*Rotation groups will be determined by age and learning level

Our intent over the summer is to provide students with learning opportunities structured in a summer-camp-esque environment.  We want students outside and moving as much as possible.  We want them exploring, questioning, and demonstrating.  We want them steeped in math, science, literacy and the arts.  Our intent is to promote summer learning in a fun way so students lose less ground over the summer months, but still feel like they've experienced the joys of summer.

What to Return:
  • Registration Paperwork
  • 20.00 per week Contribution (Do not let this be a barricade.  Please enroll your child for the summer program regardless of ability to pay.  If you can not pay 20.00 per week, pay what you can, or pay nothing at this time). Checks can be written to ANESU. Please note Expanded Learning Program in your check’s memo.
