Summer is awesome at The GreenHouse! Here's why...
Summer matters. Too much unstructured time over the summer can cause kids to lose academic ground. At The GreenHouse, youth participate in five weeks of high-quality summer programming and academic enrichment. Each summer, GreenHouse kids read as many books as they can in a "library challenge!" They participate in regular academic time to build skills through interactive learning activities. GreenHouse teens form book clubs and honing their math concepts in a fun and experimental "Summer Cooking Camp."
Summer is creative. Each summer, GreenHouse kids and teens develop their talents and passions through creative art activities. Past summer workshops have included ballet, watercolor, paper mache, collage, stomp, choir singing, making videos, recorder lessons, poetry, and zumba!
Summer is a time to grow. As GreenHouse youth explore creative expression and build friendships, they're developing social-emotional skills. During the summer, kids do an "emoji check-in" every day, cultivating the ability to recognize their emotions and express them to others. Teens participate in team-building workshops, and leave Sacramento together for a special camping trip, learning about God's love and purpose for the lives.
Summer is full of adventures! In GreenHouse summer programs, youth go on field trips every week - an important way to expand horizons and visit places outside the neighborhood.
Summer is free. High-quality summer programs are profoundly important for kids, and under-served communities often have little access to them. At The GreenHouse, we offer five weeks of holistic, top-notch summer programs, right on the block where kids live, absolutely free.
