Registration Open for 2023 Camp U Middle School Students
Camp U registration is now open for rising sixth, seventh and eighth graders!
“We want our students to come to school and learn, but have fun.
They need an array of rich experiences, especially after such a hard year.
Camp U really is an extension of Learning Reimagined, and we are excited to rethink summer school so it better serves our students.”
- Superintendent Sharonica Hardin-Bartley
Summer 2023 Camp U returns June 5 - 30, 2023
The School District of University City is excited to announce that its free Camp U program is returning this June for its third consecutive summer for students in grades 1-8. The high school will also continue with Summer Learning Academy, a program offering credit recovery and online learning.
Camp U will take place on weekdays from June 5 through June 30. There will be no camp on Monday, June 19 in honor of the federal Juneteenth holiday. Due to planned maintenance repairs at Jackson Park Elementary School this summer, students in grades 1-5 will attend Camp U at Pershing Elementary School from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Students in grades 6-8 will attend Camp U at Brittany Woods Middle School from 8 a.m. to noon.
Camp U couples hands-on academic learning with enrichment experiences in partnership with signature St. Louis learning institutions, including The Magic House at MADE, St. Louis Science Center, Forest Park Forever, The Saint Louis Zoo, The Missouri History Museum, COCA and many others. It is intended to prevent the “summer learning slide” and build academic skills, while giving all students opportunities to be a part of the many great St. Louis summer experiences offered by our fun learning institutions.
