Chicago Lights Summer Day
Chicago Lights Summer Day provides a safe place to learn and engage in academic classes and arts activities for 90 first through eighth graders for six weeks each summer. At the end of the session, children present a dynamic, multicultural music and dance performance for the community.
Students primarily from the Near North, West Town, and Humboldt Park neighborhoods come to Chicago Lights for classroom instruction in writing, reading, science, and math in the mornings; and art workshops in dance, drama, art, music, and digital music production in the afternoons.
Field trips throughout the Chicagoland area and enrichment classes such as yoga, healthy eating, and computer skills are also included in the six-week curriculum. At the end of the program, the children present a dynamic, multicultural music, dance, and drama performance for the community.
Summer Day 2013 will run from July 1–August 7, Monday–Friday from
8:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
