Tuxedo Summer Bridge and EdCamp Program

About

The COVID-19 global pandemic has impacted our children in profound ways that affect their education, achievement and social emotional wellbeing. The 2021 Tuxedo Summer Bridge & EdCamp Program responds to what we know our children need, whether that’s summer education with peers or learning support for a strong September start.

  • 100% in-person, there is no hybrid or remote option

  • 6-week program: Wednesday, July 21st - Friday, August 27th

  • This is free for all Tuxedo school districts residents including Tuxedo public school students, students
    currently tuitioning in, private school students, and homeschool students

  • Increases a child’s confidence in themselves as learners and ability to learn and achieve great things

  • Supports a child's transition from hybrid and remote schooling back to full in-person schooling

  • Provides opportunities for supported practice and relearning collaborative problem-solving and
    relationship building skills

  • Builds sense of classroom community over the summer for the first-day-of-school excitement feelings we all know and miss

  • Engages children in experiential learning through Tuxedo’s Community-As-School Project

Note that we purposely did not call this a "summer school" because that it implies students failed and no student has failed the pandemic. This is also why we added the word "Camp" to the title.
