GEF Grant in Action:

Summer School CAMP Supply Kits

This summer District 34 educators created a new and unique program to keep our children engaged in summer learning. CAMP (Create - Ask - Move - Play) was a free opportunity for all students in District 34 to be intellectually stimulated and maintain important connections with peers and educators while physically separated. The program also provided an opportunity for teachers and the district to get insights for the continual improvement of the e-learning model.

Summer learning supply kits were provided to the families participating and included drawing and painting supplies, scissors, construction paper, tape, glue, jump rope, dice and even a bubble wand! A total of 520 CAMP kits were assembled and given to District 34 families. GEF provided the funding for the CAMP kits with a special off-cycle grant.

The CAMP project and supply kits showed exceptional commitment from Glenview 34 educators to respond to this summer’s unique circumstances and provide learning experiences for our students well beyond what is legally required. We thank GEF’s sponsors and donors for their continued financial support so that we may continue to provide funding for innovative programs.
