From our Director – Week 2 Wrap-Up | Welcome to Week 3!

Welcome to Week 3 of D-E 360° Summer Connections 2021

 

We hope that you are doing well and that your summer continues to go well.  We’re excited about our in-person programs and are happy to be in touch with you about the selections you’ve made. On Monday, July 19, we have about 50 new participants who will be joining us.  For both those who have continued with Summer Connections since Week 1 and for those who are new, we wish you a hearty Welcome to Week 3.  Please keep in mind our COVID regulations to ensure we can all enjoy a safe summer. 

We have created a D-E360 Camp App for your complete access to all the links you’ll need for your programs/activities.  Please download it to your phone as well as your child’s device (if ten or older).  We’ve tried to make everything simple with access to all our program information.  Please use the weekend to get familiarized with the app, and you can find general information about the program click here.

We had a particularly wonderful second week.  A special thank you to all our 360° Summer Faculty and staff for making learning in person both fun and engaging. We’ve enjoyed the Triumph TaeKwonDo Demonstration Team’s high energy presentations, Suez Water Projects, 2021 Graduate Celebrations, Crazy Hat Day, Junior Scholars Debate, and our very own Art & Design Showcase with Young Visionaries.  This is certainly a summer for BOLD learners for all ages.

For Week 3 in Summer Connections, we’re celebrating the spirit of the opening of the Olympic Games as well as national Camp Kindness. This week’s themes inspire us all to think about greatness as well as what happens in our world when greatness intersects with humility, empathy and gratitude. As we pursue our curiosities through camp this week, we invite participants to wonder.  We think it’s important to be instilled with a sense of wonder.  After all, curiosity is crucial to learning because it makes us more likely to learn from mistakes, try new things, explore new ideas, engage others more deeply, be more adaptable, take risks, and embrace change. These are the skills of BOLD learners, which we need in our rapidly changing world right now.

 

Be Well. Stay Healthy,
