I am happy to announce that we launched Summer@Saklan this week. We are fortunate to have two excellent co-directors this year, Ashley Villalobos and Jessica Brandt. Both have years of experience working in Saklan’s summer program and are bringing to the table new energy and ideas.
As many of you know, due to COVID-19, we could not hold camps last year. This year we will be running on a limited schedule with a reduced number of participants. COVID-19 restrictions will mean a lower student to teacher ratio to help everyone stay safe. All the safety protocols that we have put into place during this school year will still be in place over the summer. Students will be masked, distanced and much of their time will be spent outside, or in well-ventilated rooms. Our cleaning and hygiene protocols will continue as well.
As in years past, our focus will be split between activities and learning a new language. Because of our limited capacity, we will only be offering Mandarin and Spanish. And while transporting students off-campus to field experiences is not possible this year- our intention is to bring some of those experiences on to campus. Whether it be a soccer trainer, photographer or animals from the Lindsay Wildlife Experience, Summer@Saklan students will be engaged and learning this summer.
