Child Care Camps

Schools work directly with the MPS Recreation Department to provide education and recreation enrichment activities for participants during the summer. Camps are designed to keep children safe, provide quality child care and relieve stress for working families. Youth are also given opportunities to participate in a variety of recreation activities designed to keep them active and socially engaged during the summer months.

Cooperative Tutoring

In partnership with Milwaukee area churches, the Cooperative Tutoring program provides supervised homework assistance at area churches after school. All sites tutor children in K5 through 5th grade. A special emphasis is placed on providing assistance in the areas of math and reading; however sites also assist children with specific academic needs. The program is staffed predominately by church members and community volunteers.

Community Learning Centers

The focus of the Summer CLCs is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities to help students bridge the academic gap between school years.

Safe Places

Schools partner with Milwaukee area community-based organizations to provide students with academic enrichment, health and nutrition, social competence, recreation and family support. A nominal program fee is charged.
