Summer Opportunities for youth!

Other Opportunities

Solar Youth will be continuing our partnership with Schooner Summer Camp. They are expanding to serve youth aged 4-12 and have several scholarship spaces open. Learn more here. Applications will be available at the Solar Youth office starting June 4th. 

For youth under age 4 or over age 12, we recommend that families call 211, and ask about what summer options are available in New Haven. In addition, Mayor's Summer Youth Guide 2017 is a wonderful resource for families looking for alternative camp options.

Curious about what other resources are available in New Haven during the summer? Email Empowerment Coordinator Kenisha
