Power Scholars Summer Camp
Power Scholars Camp:
Location: St. Brigid School, West Hartford
Session Running 2-6
Power Scholars Academy Camp is a partnership between the YMCA of Greater Hartford, Building Educated Leaders for Life (BELL), and YMCA of the USA. The PSA Camp model integrates structured academic instruction into a pre-existing camp 3 hours per day, four days per week, over the course of five weeks to mitigate the summer learning loss. Monday-Thursday morning students receive three hours of academic support (90 minutes of literacy and 90 minutes of math). In the afternoon scholar’s participate in traditional camp enrichment activities including arts & crafts, science experiments, and sports. Fridays are reserved for field trips to local museums, universities, parks, or other fun destinations, as well as guest speakers and community service projects. Y-BELL’s holistic approach promotes academic achievement, goal setting, and personal development, which youth are able to sustain during the academic year.
