SAN FRANCISCO—The Summer Together 2021 registration is officially open. Under the Summer Together Initiative, the San Francisco Department of Recreation and Parks will provide 35 camps at 30 sites across the city, all in three-week sessions, beginning on June 7.
The Summer Together Initiative is a coalition of community organizations, nonprofits, businesses, and city departments partnering to offer free in-person and virtual learning experiences for San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) students this summer.
Registrants will be prioritized based on the following factors, which will indicate those with the highest need for the program:
- Residents of public housing, RVs and SROs
- Families that are experiencing homelessness
- Children and youth in the foster care system
- English language learners
- Low-income families, with a focus on historically impacted communities, including people who identify as African American, Latino/a/x, Native American, Pacific Islander, and/or Asian
- Children and youth with disabilities
Families that fall under any of these categories are eligible to participate in the “early registration period” which is from April 19 to May 7. Registration will open May 8 at 10 a.m. for those who do not meet any of the above criteria.
The program will feature:
- Academic, in-person learning
- Summer camps at sites throughout the city
- Virtual arts and academic classes
- Free books for every student
SFUSD-based summer programs will take place from June 7 to July 16. All other summer programming will occur from June 14 to August 13.
