2023 Summer Program Information:

Summer CAP is a 10-week program which operates from 6:45 am to 6:00pm each weekday beginning June 20 to August 25, 2023.  CAP’s summer curriculum has been structured with an emphasis on education through STEAM, i.e., science and technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, and includes weekly weekly field trips.

The CAP summer program is designed to encourage continued reading throughout the summer as well as supplement the weekly programming curriculum.  Books will be provided that relate to each weekly theme—these books will also be available for children to read throughout the week as well as during designated Reading Club time.  And don’t forget that books are also welcome from home!  Each site will enjoy an end-of-summer party as children work towards and meet the “summer reading minutes” goal!

Summer 2023 Information and Guidelines:

The children will be busy with a wide variety of age-appropriate activities customized by staff at each site.  The information below will be helpful in assisting you and your child to have a positive summer experience:

Swimwear – Summer days are long and hot, and we will have many opportunities to visit the Cool! Pool throughout the summer program.  Please send a modest bathing suit/swimming shorts, a life-jacket if necessary, and a towel on pool days to ensure appropriate and comfortable participation.

Water Bottle – Drink, drink, drink! Those dry, dusty summer winds can make any little throat feel dry and scratchy.   There are two options for a water bottle, i.e., a personal water bottle brought daily and taken home each evening for washing OR a purchased bottled water supplied each day.

Quiet Time – Some children just need a little power nap before they can head back out to the playground.  If your child has a favorite blanket/pillow for quiet time, be sure to send it along, as well.

Labeling – Please be sure to label each and every item you send with your child with both their first and last names (i.e., water bottles, sunscreen, pillow, personal belongings, etc.)  This will help keep things organized during field trips and other activities as well as to help keep lost items to a minimum.

Personal Items – Personal items brought from home are always welcome.  However, please understand that CAP is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items.  If your personal item has monetary or sentimental value, we encourage you to leave it at home.

Extra Supplies – We welcome any type of arts, crafts, toys and/or supply donations (i.e., Kleenex, toilet paper, paper towels, etc.)  And don’t forget – any donation made to CAP is tax deductible!

Meals – Lunch will be provided by the Greater Albany Public School District in partnership with the USDA Summer Food Service Program.  Additionally, CAP provides a morning and afternoon snack for children enrolled in the program.

Field Trips – Please do NOT send money for your child to purchase food, extra items or souvenirs on field trips days.  This eliminates many issues with regards to fairness for all and any inappropriate behavior associated with one having something another does not.  If parents wish to accompany their child they will be responsible for their own entrance fees should one be assessed.  A parent volunteer form must be completed and approved through the criminal background check procedure (a minimum of 2 weeks along with a $47.50 non-refundable application processing fee).
