Summer@PBS

Same summer excellence…
 

We want you to spend your summer with us! Even through trying times, our Summer@PBS mission stands firm – Inspiring students to deepen their academic learning, engage their curiosity and pursue their passions. After some careful planning and reevaluating of our program structure, we are so excited to announce our plans for Summer@PBS 2021!

…NOW WITH EXPANDED OPTIONS!
 

With the number of uncertainties of what the summer might look like we are planning three different summer program options to meet the needs and comfortability of your family. First, we will be offering Summer@PBS Online - online, synchronously instructed, virtual week-long camps. These camps will follow the same format as the online instructed Summer 2020 camps. Second, we will be offering a new type of programming this summer, Summer@PBS Day Camp! These on campus full day camps will run for 3 and 4 weeks with a consistent cohort and will reflect a typical camp experience of organized games, crafts and explorations. Third, and reflecting typical summer programming we have Summer@PBS Enrichment Camps. These on campus week-long camps with 4 hours of curriculum daily will offer a deep dive into a variety of subjects and will be led by our own PBS Faculty and beloved enrichment instructors!

Space will be limited so we
encourage early registration!

 

Grade Levels

Summer@PBS is designed for students entering Kindergarten through 6th grade in the 2021–2022 school year. This Summer@PBS we are excited to open up Summer@PBS Enrichment and Online classes to rising 6th graders! Classes will be grouped K–2 and 3–6 and K-6. Summer@PBS Day Camp will be open to rising Kindergarten-5th Grade students.

Camp Safety

Safety during Summer@PBS is our number one priority and we are taking a number of precautionary measures to ensure all involved feel as safe as possible participating. In addition to continuing the robust health protocols we have set in place, we will be continually assessing the current health climate to ensure all on campus programming is as safe as possible and in compliance with county regulations. Much of our programming will take place outdoors, no camp group will be larger than 14 students, all camps groups will be independent of one another, and all in person camps are only open to PBS students. 

PBS will make the decision of what camps will run based on the current health climate and registration numbers on May 1, 2021. Families will have until May 7th to to make their final decisions to attend or cancel registrations with full refund. 

Campers should continue to report their COVID-19 PCR test results in accordance with the summer program testing schedule in order to participate.

Summer@PBS Day Camp

Introducing a brand new summer option, Summer@PBS Day Camp! The exciting option offers students the opportunity for a one-of-a-kind camp experience here at PBS. Students registered will spend the full 8am-5pm day at PBS, participating in camp games, organized activities, and time to explore and make connection with others in their community! Additionally each week will be themed and campers will complete collaborative projects revolving around each theme. Check out the themes and a sample day schedule below!

To allow for longer-term stable cohorts, there will be two sections of programming - a three-week section (June 14, June 21, June 28) and a four-week section (July 12, July 19, July 26, Aug 2). Families must commit to a minimum of one full section when registering. Students will be in mixed grade cohorts of 14 students and supervised by 2 camp leaders. This camp is available to current and incoming students rising into grades K-5. Students will be unable to participate in other Summer@PBS programming when in Day Camp.
