Enrich Your Child’s Summer with ‘Summer Sampler’
2013 Summer Sampler program is fully subscribed.
Systems of Education and Teton 10 announce enrollment for “Summer Sampler,” a new three-week summer program for 100 kids entering first through sixth grades. The program aims to introduce youth and their families to a sampling of several summer programs at an affordable rate. The program will engage school-age youth in a variety of enriching activities – science and nature, literacy, sports, history, art - and provide an experiential introduction to a variety of summer programs, camps and activities. Once the Sampler ends, families can enroll on their own in the programs that appeal most to their kids for the remainder of the summer.
The Summer Sampler is a result of wide community collaboration. Three “Lead Organizations” will coordinate the Summer Sampler programming experience: Camp JOY, Jackson Hole Children’s Museum and Teton Science Schools. The Lead Organizations will partner with several other organizations, or “enrichment partners,” to enrich youth’s experience and exposure to a variety of programs over the three weeks.
Lead Organizations contribute their expertise in programming and logistics and work together with Enrichment Partners to provide participants with an amazing array of experiences. Many organizations will donate time or resources to make the program happen.
“Several Enrichment Partners will contribute enrichment programming in-kind to the Sampler,” said Isabel Zumel, Teton County Library Assistant Director. “And Teton 10’s financial contribution of scholarship support makes it possible to keep the tuition cost affordable across the board for all participants.”
