Nuestro Verano’s main purpose is to ensure that local children have a safe, fun, and educational learning environment during the summer weeks. Daily programs include team building to encourage cooperation, patience, and communication. Fun activities in math and reading help campers keep up their academic gains from the school year. Art, movement, and music programming offers opportunities for self-expression and learning about Latino and other cultures.
Field trips offer visits to nearby and Chicago cultural and recreational sites. Children receive a healthy meal every day at the beginning of the program.
Parent workshops during camp provide parents with tools to support their child’s emotional growth and well-being.
