Summer Shade Camp

Branches’ Summer Shade is filled with friends, faith, fun learning, and field trips!

Branches’ Summer Shade provides an amazing camp experience to our elementary, middle, and high school students and serves over 400 children and youth during the summer. The day camp takes place at all three Branches Grow & Climb sites: Branches Lakeview, Branches South Miami, and Branches Florida City.

Summer Shade focuses on creative learning in order to help prevent summer learning loss, often associated with the long summer break. Children will continue to read and learn during the summer so they may be ready to attend the next grade level in the Fall. Many parents are unable to provide such academic support over the summer since they have to continue working, or simply do not have the language skills or education to guide their children.

Summer Shade also offers enriching activities sports, exciting field trips and much more!

2023 Summer Shade Camp Dates: June 19 – July 28

To sponsor a student, volunteer or register your child for the 2023 session, please contact Kim Torres, Senior Vice President, at THANK YOU!
