In our first summer camp, we provided 34 students, ages 11-14, with the opportunity to learn about coding, film making, drama, dance, STEAM activities and visual Arts. 20 students who could not afford tuition were given financial need scholarships, which were made available through generous donations from individuals and corporations like you.
