Summer Friends at Media Providence Friends School
Summer Friends at MPFS is set to return for the 2021 season! Summer Friends runs from June 21-August 20, 2021 and provides children ages 3-10 (preschool – entering fifth grade) with an opportunity to participate in weekly thematic units taught by experienced counselors and certified elementary teachers. Weekly themes may include Nature Week, Magic Week, Sports Week, and Drama Week. Children enjoy the freedom of summer in a welcoming, safe, and relaxed environment. Enriching on-site programs are complemented by field trips* to museums, zoos, and other local venues. Twice weekly, campers participate in instructional and recreational swimming at Knowlton Swim Club with certified water safety instructors.
The campers at Summer Friends are free to explore, play, and express themselves in the safe and nurturing environment found year-round at Media-Providence Friends School. COVID-19 precautions will be in place and group size will be limited. Smaller groups allow for meaningful interaction with teachers as well as other children of similar ages and all activities are tailored for campers’ developmental and physical levels. The children at Summer Friends participate in a wide variety of experiences that help them shape their vision of the people and the world around them.
This summer, counselors, staff, and campers will observe COVID-19 precautions to assure that everyone has a safe and fun summer. These safety measures will include reduced class sizes, wearing face masks, daily temperature checks, frequent hand washing and sanitizing of surfaces, and social distancing while indoors.
*Please note: field trips and all off-site activities will be assessed on a case-by-case basis given current COVID-19 restrictions.
Registrations received after May 15 will include a $75 late fee.
