Programs for Kids SUMMER CAMPS & Classes

Learning and fun continue this summer
Thanks to the creative spirit and ingenuity of owners and staff members, many summer camp programs will continue to offer students an opportunity to learn new things and have fun in the coming months either in-person or virtually, while keeping within the existing public health officials' guidelines and safety measures. Shoshana Marks, who runs The Writing Studio, will offer remote learning for her summer camps and has been running winter/spring classes via Zoom and Google Docs, for example, and others like Susan Goldie of Sewnow! Fashion Studio are offering virtual classes as well.
Look for an updated "Summer Camps & Classes" listing in our May 27 issue.
