Virtual Summer Camps

After the decision was made to cancel summer camps at Sycamore, we put out the call to our faculty and other educators we know and trust to see if they were interested in serving our school community by offering virtual summer camps and classes.  We have learned a lot over the last 8 weeks of distance learning and one thing we heard over and over was the value to students of connecting with teachers and friends.  We believe the virtual camps listed below will provide that opportunity for that to continue this summer.  The goal of the school in organizing these camps was to benefit the Sycamore community and not the school.  Accordingly, we decided to have families pay the teachers directly, which enables us to minimize the cost of the camps while making sure the teachers giving up their time this summer are compensated appropriately.  Thus, if you click on the name of each camp listed below, it will take you to a flyer, and the line about registration will have the email address of the instructor.  If you want to register for a camp, email that teacher and they will communicate next steps.  If you have any questions please contact Melissa Branigan at branigan.melissa@sycamoreschool.org.
