Service Learning Camp
The Middle School Service Learning Camp is designed to allow students entering Grades 6 - 8 a chance to participate in several different service experiences for two weeks in the summer.
Program Dates: June 27 - July 8, 2016
This program exposes students to various populations in the Los Angeles area; the work is all very hands-on and active. This summer experience will whet students' appetites to serve the greater community throughout the rest of their lives. In addition to providing services in the community, all service campers will become certified by the American Red Cross in First Aid-CPR-AED. The camp takes place each day from 8:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Students will participate in on and off-campus service activities. They will meet daily at Brentwood School and be bussed to and from off-campus organizations. Students should bring a sack lunch daily.
