Our Summer Enrichment Camp offers a unique opportunity for children to build self-confidence, make friends, develop new skills, and foster a love for creative learning. Since its inception, this program has become increasingly popular among students from diverse cultural backgrounds. This year's program runs from June 26 to August 4, 2023, at the Forestdale School (4 Sylvan Street, Malden, MA 02148).
