Parker School’s summer programs, which ended in July, added two new programs this year. In addition to summer camp for ages 5-12, enrichment courses for ages 11-17 and Challenger Sports’ British Soccer Camp for ages 3-14 were offered. In the Parker Summer Camp, the young campers enjoyed science, art, drama, athletic activities, and lots of excursions. The older kids had fun in a variety of enrichment courses such as an acting/improv intensive, Chinese kempo and self-defense, and outdoor survival skills. British soccer coaches spent a week with young soccer enthusiasts during the British Soccer Camp held on Parker’s soccer field. The kids learned everything from technical skills to sportsmanship. All three programs are open to all community children. Plans for next year’s summer programs are already underway.
