This summer, 16,000 local schoolkids will have the chance to “Dream! Explore! Do!”
The city, county and United Way’s Allegheny Partners for Out-of-School Time (APOST) announced a partnership Monday — Summer 16 Dream! Explore! Do! — providing summer learning opportunities to students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
“Learning doesn’t stop at the end of the school year, and there are more and more opportunities available each and every year for children of all ages in our community,” Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said. “The Summer 16 program will provide access to everything going on in our community, for parents and youth alike. Whether you’re looking for a summer job, or are interested in biking, cultural activities, a camp, or nature activities, we have something for everyone.”
Students and their parents can begin searching and signing up for one- to six-week camps that fit their interests and needs online at pghsummer16.pittsburghpa.gov, which launched Monday. They should be notified by early May of their acceptance into the summer programs.
