Enriching Lives with Summer Programs in CA State Parks

185 views 5 months ago
Studies show that during the summer months, kids who are out of school tend to fall behind, especially if they live in underserved communities with a lack of learning opportunities. In 2009, California State Parks Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation launched a program to address this problem.

The Packard Summer Enrichment Program extends resources to these underserved communities where kids are often at risk of a "learning gap" during the summer months. To date, the program has made it possible for more than 730 diverse, urban and low-income youth to experience the outdoors in California state parks and engage in a variety of educational experiences related to science, natural resources, ecology and more.
