The students at LaAmistad look forward to this spectacular summer camp every year! LaAmistad partners with The Westminster Schools of Atlanta over the summer, to ensure that each student's academic success carries over into their next school year. At the Westminster location campers are dropped off promptly at 8:30 A.M. The students spend the majority of their day sharpening the academic skills they have learned throughout the school year. The academic material used throughout each day include: language arts, reading, and math. These lessons are taught in both English and Spanish. Of course no summer camp would be complete without activities such as swimming, sports, and arts and crafts.
After a long day of hard work and play, the buses then pick up the students at 2:30pm to return them to their respective sites. Students leave the camp each summer with their academic skills pushed to the next level, but also leave the camp with positive memories and relationships to help carry them through the next school year. Many of the students who attend Animate without belonging to LaAmistad, go on to later join LaAmistad once a new program opens in their area or more slots open at current locations.
Anímate Summer Academy runs from June 5 to June 29
