Summer Bridge Camp

Sometime summer camps end a little too soon leaving a time that needs to be “bridged” before public elementary schools start. To help with that challenge, HR & Payroll is piloting a summer bridge camp from August 15-September 2 for children ages 6-10. Choose 1, 2, or 3 weeks. The theme is “Junior Detective Agency” and it will be held on the Fairfax Campus. For details, including camp pricing and before/after camp care, please see the Summer Bridge Camp flyer. If you have questions or would like to discuss this new opportunity, please contact Tina Morris at 3.5807 or via email at
