It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of Summer Experience 2020. After considering many scenarios to possibly make our programs work, we cannot confidently solve the inevitable concerns of safety, which we hold to be the most important. We just cannot risk the health and well-being of our Summer Experience families in the unprecedented and constantly evolving situation presented by COVID-19.
While we are not able to offer the programming we had scheduled for this summer, we will be taking time to mindfully discuss if there is anything we can do to support your families through this difficult time. At the very least, we hope to tap into our wide network of outstanding educators, early childhood specialists and local organizations of all kinds to share virtual events and activities with our community.
SE20 Cancellation Letter (April 22, 2020)
Virtual Summer Resource Guide
We acknowledge that we cannot replicate the excellence of our experiential-based program online and therefore, we have decided not to move any of our Summer Experience to virtual learning. We would like to leave it to the experts in that field that are already established and able to do that platform justice. Therefore, we have reached out to our business organization partners and teachers who have existing online learning or virtual opportunities and have compiled this information into a resource guide for families. The guide includes fee based programs that require advance registration as well as free virtual events and/or activities. Please note CA Summer Experience will NOT be facilitating or managing these programs/events/activities, but simply providing a directory for families that may be interested in exploring these alternate opportunities.
CA Summer @ Home
CA Summer @ Home is FREE daily activities managed by SE administrative staff and provided through Google Classroom for grades PreK-6. There are weekly themes, guest appearances from familiar Summer Experience faces, and the feeling of community, all from home!
