The Los Alamitos Education Foundation (LAEF) is excited to offer Enrichment Camps from August 3-14 for kids entering grades TK-5. Enrichment camps will be held in-person on elementary school campuses. Each grade-level camp will include academic, enrichment, outdoor activities, and community building activities. Camp cohorts of 8-17 students will be kept intact throughout the entire week. In addition to the grade-level camps, STEM Camps are also being offered. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math.
LAEF has worked diligently to create COVID-19 guidelines that are aligned with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Day Camps guidance, CDPH School-Based Program guidance, and the Orange County Department of Education’s Orange County Together: Guide to Reopening Schools in the COVID-19 Era.
“Once we knew that school would not begin until August 31, we knew that families would be looking for additional opportunities for their children. As a parent, I am seeing firsthand how my eight-year-old daughter is craving interaction with her peers and is sliding in her academics and emotional health,” said Carrie Logue, LAEF’s Executive Director. “We have designed the camps to have an academic component, but a large focus is to bring children back together in a safe environment.”
The LAEF Enrichment Camps mission is to reconnect students with a teacher, their peers, and the classroom environment through a fun, enriching, academically engaging, and emotionally safe summer camp.
Camp 1 will run August 3-7 at Rossmoor Elementary. Camp 2 will run August 10-14 at Weaver Elementary. All camps will be held from 9:00am to 12:00pm daily with additional camps from 12:45-3:45pm. Camp guidelines only allow students to be enrolled in one camp per week.
The camp fee is $175 until July 27 and $190 thereafter. Multi-class discounts are available – 10% off of the 2ndcamp and 15% off additional camps.
