|Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is launching Camp CMS, a free six-week program to help students who may have fallen behind on academics and emotional development due to a lack of in-person classroom interaction.|
Camp CMS will offer free in-person social, emotional and instructional support to CMS students who need continued learning after more than a year of remote learning. The six-week summer program will focus on reading, math, science and enrichment activities. Transportation and free breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Camp CMS will take place Monday through Thursday from June 14-July 29 from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m., although start times may vary by location. There’ll be a one-week break July 5–9. Host locations will be at schools across the districts, with a list of sites will be announced in late spring.
"As a district, we need to support our students academically and address any unfinished instruction after this challenging year. It's also on us as a district to create something that's joyful. We want to make sure a kid gets out of bed in the morning and wants to come to Camp CMS this summer," said Brian Kingsley, chief academic officer.
