Time to Register for Summer Place
Over the years, many children of university faculty and staff have attended a Summer Place program, at significantly reduced tuition rates. This tuition discount is once again being offered as a special benefit to full-time and regular part-time faculty and staff.
There are four programs: the Summer Place (entering its twenty-fourth season), Summer Place Players, Kinderplace, and new this year, Li’l Place. Each summer, more than 1,200 campers and their families are introduced to the outstanding opportunities and facilities of the University through these programs.
Following are highlights of the four programs.
- Summer Place, for first- through ninth-graders, is a unique enrichment and sports program that gives campers the opportunity to choose from 71 courses in art, communication, computers, cooking, cooperative learning, outdoor adventure, science, theater, and so much more, and from a wide range of team sports and non-competitive athletic activities. More than 100 teachers, coaches, and college students staff the program. Three two-week sessions, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
June 27 – August 5
- Kinderplace, for entering kindergarteners, and Li’l Place, for preschoolers, are two special programs that combine the fun of camp with appropriate learning experiences highlighting art, stories, music, nature walks, swimming, field trips, and so much more. Three two-week sessions, full and part-day options available.
June 27 – August 5
- Summer Place Players, for sixth- through twelfth-graders, is a musical theater program that provides training in acting, dance, and voice and the opportunity to perform in this year’s hilariously entertaining show, Little Shop of Horrors. The Players is staffed by theater, music, and dance professionals who have extensive experience working with young people; the director is Professor Bob Davis of the Hartt School. The program is based at the university’s Magnet School and the four performances are in Lincoln Theater. A five week program, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
