Summer Camp 2022
Summer usually means fun in Redwood City and North Fair Oaks, but not necessarily for everyone. Generations United is committed to providing safe spaces where the fun of learning can continue, even after the school year ends. We had incredible camps for students in July. Thanks to a partnership with Calvary Church San Mateo and the Redwood City Salvation Army, we had a Vacation Bible School (VBS) element to go along with our traditional STEAM activities. Each week had a morning and afternoon session with a meal and snacks provided.
For many students, June through August is a prime opportunity for "summer slide" - the term that refers to what happens to their academic skills they gained throughout the year. Therefore, Generations United keeps our Academic Enrichment Centers open, providing one of the few places in the area for kids to keep learning alive, catch up on needed skills, and strengthen literacy by reading one-on-one with Redwood City Reads volunteers.
