CPY’s Summer Intersession is a five-week program that takes place during summer vacation. Unlike our Afterschool Mentor/Tutor Program it takes place at one site and children enrolled attend the program all-day. This allows our staff to foster an even deeper relationship with the children, helping them to become positive role models.
The goal for Summer Intersession is still the same; CPY aims to provide a supportive, structured, creative environment for children to learn and grow. The summer program however, allows for a greater depth and variety in which the staff are able to work with the CPY students. Days are filled with numerous academic and enrichment activities; including reading and writing, arts and crafts, photo club, learning technology, and other various outdoor and indoor activities. Another important activity that happens daily is a family style lunch. Here children learn the importance of eating together, all while learning valuable table manners.
Summer Intersession has always been a great opportunity to see personal growth in the CPY students and staff. It is a place where children are able to build strong bonds with peers and mentors that last for years to come.
