The Greenwich High School PTA will host its annual SummerFare Camp Expo for middle and high school students on Wednesday, Jan. 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the school’s Student Center.
This popular event is open to the public and is free of charge and, in case of bad weather, a snow date of Thursday, Jan. 31 has been scheduled.
With more than 130 summer camps showcased and representatives from both traditional day and sleep away camps to more exotic summer ventures abroad, people will be on hand at SummerFare to help parents find just the right program for your student. Parents will also be able to find “an array of academic programs, sports, visual and performing arts, outdoor adventure, community service programs, computers, and special education programs.”
“This is a wonderful chance to have you and your child’s questions answered and have program representatives explain their diverse summer opportunities or to simply pick up camp brochures and DVDs,” event organizers said in a press release.
Despite the chilly weather in January, SummerFare is designed to give families a look ahead to summer and to beat the rush on camp sign-ups as spring approaches and programs fill up quickly.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for you and your teen to get information on summer programs offered from many exciting organizations,” one GHS parent said. “Having so many programs featured in one location takes the stress out of the search and saves valuable time.”
This year marks the 24th year that the Greenwich High School PTA is sponsoring SummerFare, one of its largest community service events. Greenwich High School parents Michelle Allen and Cathy Buck are co-chairing this year’s event.
