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

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!
