Dear Families,

Welcome! Count on us for a summer of BOLD learning with our D-E 360° Summer Connections programs scheduled to run from July 6 through August 13. Understanding fully the needs of young people from both social-emotional and academic perspectives, we’re offering in-person programs for learners at all ages for six weeks this summer. Participants may join us for two, four, or all six weeks.

We have a range of experiences planned that include art and design, theater, music and movement, environmental conservation and STEM leadership, academic and life skills building as well as more traditional “camp” programs.

After a summer of virtual programs in 2020, we are excited to welcome back faculty, staff and trusted partners to join us IN PERSON on campus for Summer Connections 2021.
