From the South Orange-Maplewood Adult School:
The South Orange-Maplewood Adult School Children’s Summer Program offers more than 100 classes in creative arts, music, science and sports. Students get to choose their own classes (there are five periods in a day) and the day can be as long or short as you like. This summer the program will be located at South Orange Middle School. Students can expect to follow their custom-made schedule each day, be instructed by professional, experienced teachers and be assisted by our fabulous teen counselors. The program also offers both early morning drop-off (onsite) and after-care run by the South Mountain YMCA.
Specialty classes range from coding and woodworking to TV production and a musical theater camp—and nearly everything in between.
The Summer Orchestra Academy provides ensemble lessons and individual mentoring for violin, viola and cello students entering 3rd through 8th grade. The Summer Band Academy provides ensemble lessons and individual mentoring for woodwind, brass and percussion students entering 6th through 8th grade. Both Academies culminate with a concert performance. The popular Suzuki violin program will be offered for students who have taken Suzuki violin lessons during the year and wish to continue to the next level.
The sports camp offers basketball, fencing, track, soccer and girls volleyball.
The Summer Program runs for two sessions: Session 1 is July 1-12 and Session 2 is July 15-26. Classes are for children entering grades 1-9, with the exception of some of the sports camps, which go up to grade 12. Parents are encouraged to enroll their children early in order to ensure space is available.
