Community Learning Centers (CLCs):
The focus of the Summer CLCs is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities to help students bridge the academic gap between school years. Additionally, CLC programs provide youth development activities, technology education, art, music and recreation activities, and family programs. Milwaukee area community based organizations work collaboratively with the MPS to operate this program. Please view the following documents for more information:
Child Care Camps:
Schools work directly with the MPS Recreation Department to provide education and recreation enrichment activities for participants during the summer. Camps are designed to keep children safe, provide quality child care and relieve stress for working families. Youth are also given opportunities to participate in a variety of recreation activities designed to keep them active and socially engaged during the summer months.
