KEY PROGRAM COMPONENTS
Enrichment Experiences – students are provided with four to five weeks of summer camp experiences that already exist in the greater Grand Rapids area. College students and teachers serve as program assistants who will accompany Passport students to the camps.
Career Exploration – students learn more about their own skills and interests via online assessment tools and research careers that could be a good fit. They also participate in job shadowing and visit institutions that offer postsecondary credentialing.
Soft Skills Training – students will continue their training on learning about “soft skills” (e.g., teamwork, communication, responsibility, integrity, etc.). Skills will be reviewed and encouraged throughout the summer.
Academics – Fun and engaging activities are incorporated into camp experiences to reinforce math and literacy skills. No summer learning loss for Passport participants!
Breakfast and lunch are included each day, as well as transportation to all camps and activities. Due to a generous grant, the enrollment costs for all camps are covered.
