Register Today for Hennesey Scholar Camp!

To provide professional academic support alongside dynamic and varied enrichment programming every school day.

What?

The Hennessey Scholar Camp is an after school program held daily at Hennessey Elementary school in East Providence. The program began in the fall of 2014 and allows us to serve up to 80 students each day. We are proud to work alongside the school and many community partners to make Hennessey the best possible experience for our youngsters and to provide them with the tools and skills necessary to thrive as students and members of our community.

When?

The Hennessey Scholar Camp runs Monday – Friday from school dismissal – 6:00 pm daily. Summer Camp, including supplemental academic enrichment activities, is available through the EPBGC’s Camp Crosby at a discounted rate for Hennessey Students.

Afternooons at Hennessey include two main components.  The first is Power Hour which provides academic enrichment lead by certified elementary school teachers and Boys and Girls Club staff. The second is our programming block where we offer a wide variety of academic and recreational options including programs that promote youth leadership, healthy living, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics).

 

Where?

Most activities will take place directly at school, however there may be some off-site programs offered, such as swimming at the Williams Avenue Clubhouse.

 

Why?

We understand that quality after school programs are at a premium in East Providence, and that the best way to support students academics are to work directly with their teachers.  This program will be the best of both worlds – blending quality academic support with fun and exciting activities to ensure children are excited and willing to learn!
