  • Foster a sense of pride and self-worth.

  • Demonstrate talent and creativity.

  • Develop a level of proficiency in art, music, dance, poetry, drama, and athletics.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

BOOK CLUB

Ask your child who’s their favorite author? Do they know? Is it a person of color? How often is your child engaged in a book? Books not only increase one’s imagination, but they also strengthen the brain and build vocabulary and reading comprehension. Through reading, we can become better speakers and writers. Reading is the most fundamental skill that will prepare your child for future success. During the summer, the C3 crew will be members of a book club. They will read and discuss books by black authors. After reading each book, they will engage in a project aligned with the theme of the book.

VISUAL ARTS

Members of the C3 Crew will observe, analyze, and or create paintings, drawings, videos, designs and crafts that focus on learning about black history, culture, and excellence.

PERFORMING  ARTS

Members of the C3 Crew will read and recite poetry. Choreograph dances, sing, rap, step, and engage in dramatic readings grounded in black history, culture, and excellence.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Members of the C3 Crew will engage in daily sports and recreational  play and games.

FIELD TRIPS

Members of the C3 Crew will participate in weekly field trips. The cost of field trips is included in the tuition cost.

End of Summer Showcase

On the Last day of camp, members of the C3 Crew will demonstrate their talents and gifts by presenting and performing their learning.
