Dear Parents/Family,
Have you thought about signing your student up for some real face-to-face summer fun? Grizzly Learning Camp (Summer School), for students at every grade level, is a great way to have your child continue their learning over the summer. Ypsilanti Community Schools (YCS) is offering a one-of-a-kind summer school experience. Students will be in small groups with YCS teachers participating in hands-on activities (Mondays through Thursdays). We will have community partners that will team up with your student’s teacher to provide a unique, fun, and educational experience.

Our Grizzly Learning Camp may have themes like superheroes, insects, music, art, dance, science, coding, culinary arts, auto mechanics, body shop repair, college tours across the state, credit recovery, and many more. Students will visit museums, studios, gardens, parks, and many other area businesses. Students will be excited with this face-to-face instruction that will also, have them with their friends again.

Students that enroll in summer school will have transportation provided for them. They will also receive breakfast, lunch, a T-Shirt, and water bottle. After registering look for more information in early June from your student’s school or on our website. Child care options will be made available for younger students. Students, staff, and partners will follow all COVID-19 safety protections including wearing masks.

Imagine seeing your child burst through the door after a day of learning, telling you all about their grand adventure at Frog Island, the museum, or the science lab at the University of Michigan.
