Camp Wonderopolis joins NYC’s Summer in the City learning program

| No Comments

We’re excited to announce that the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (NYC DYCD) has selected Camp Wonderopolis to pilot a summer learning program that will support children and parents learning together in DYCD-funded after-school program sites across the boroughs.

For example, Camp Wonderopolis’ hands-on approach to STEM learning will invite families to “build” the Brooklyn Bridge and test its strength using everyday objects that can typically be found in a household or program. Participating families will engage in science-themed reading and hands-on learning.

Each selected site will receive online training and technical assistance as well as kits from NCFL to help maximize the Camp Wonderopolis experience—with a special focus on maker activities. This pilot program will help the sites provide fun, literacy-building intergenerational workshops for families once each week for six weeks.

Note: Camp Wonderopolis is open to kids and parents everywhere. Preregister today!
