Summer 2017 has seen more than 275 kids on St. Anne's-Belfield School campuses for School-run summer programs. From sports camps to theatre options to a college essay bootcamp, opportunities for local students age three to grade twelve have offered children the chance to explore new interests, refine existing skills, and engage with new faculty and friends.
This year's Tech Camp @ STAB included three programs that reached maximum capacity - Maker Party, Scratch, and Game Design - as well as a host of other camps for students in grades two through twelve. A partnership with local nonprofit Tech-Girls will also offer girls in grades nine through twelve the opportunity to experience hands-on bio-medical research at U.Va. beginning August 7.
The School's Summer ELL Camp included 14 international campers, and provided experiences designed to help increase their knowledge of American culture while also improving their English language skills. Computer science and art classes, daily physical activity, trips to Monticello and other area attractions, and a day trip to Washington, D.C. kept all participants busy for their three weeks.
For two weeks in July, the School also hosted 45 students for its annual Camp Corwith, a program offered free of charge for boys and girls from the Charlottesville Albemarle community who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a summer camp. Academic pursuits including reading, writing, math, and science mixed with football, basketball, soccer, field trips, and more to make each day an unforgettable experience. Camp Corwith is named for Corwith Davis '95, who passed away in 2012, and made possible by donors to the Camp Corwith Fund.
