When Miami-Dade County Public Schools are closed for the summer, the City of Hialeah has you covered. Parents will have peace of mind knowing their child or teen is having a blast in a safe and welcoming environment. The City of Hialeah has three types of summer camps to choose from.
The Creative Learning and Play (CLAP) Summer Camps are held for students ages 6-12 at six convenient locations throughout the city. The camp includes literacy tutoring by certified teachers, enrichment activities, field trips, and indoor/outdoor games at a reasonable price due to being funded in part by The Children's Trust. Registration for the CLAP Summer Camp is currently open at the Education and Community services office located at 7400 W. 24th Avenue.
The Young Leaders with Character Summer Camp (YLC) Academic Achievers and STEAM Ahead Program serves teens ages 11-18 years old from the following schools: Hialeah Educational Academy, Jose Marti MAST Academy, Hialeah Middle School, Palm Springs Middle School, and Henry H. Filer Middle School. The summer camp includes academic tutoring and PBL projects, STEM classes, a water safety program, enrichment activities and indoor/outdoor games. Registration for the YLC programs begins at each of the site locations from 3:00- 5:30 PM on April 18, 2017. The cost is FREE due to funding from 21st CCLC.
The STEP AHEAD Summer Program offers FREE summer activities for Miami-Dade County Public School (M-DCPS) high school students with special needs. In partnership with M-DCPS and Best Buddies, the program facilitates the shift from high school to the workforce through learning opportunities, enrichment activities, social skills lessons, job training and employment support. Program includes an employment stipend. Space is limited and registration is currently open.
