HACEF Success

Even though school’s out for the summer months, the district was still bustling with activity thanks to Harborfields Community Educational Foundation’s (HACEF) Summer Camp program. This camp, that just wrapped up for the season, offered four-day camp options for elementary and middle school students throughout the summer. Each week offered a plethora of themed programs — from Harry Potter Camp to Wood Crafting to Summertime Science — and this year’s enrollment boasted 850 students, a number that surpassed last year’s previously record-breaking 680.

Most programs were taught by Harborfields teachers and offered fun ways for children to pursue subjects or hobbies that they gravitate to or are curious about. The STEM centered camps — like Coding, Robotics, and Intro to Video Production — were some of the most popular of the summer and provide students with hands-on learning in a different setting.

“In these camps, students learn skills that they will carry with them,” said HACEF Camp creator and coordinator Karin Fey. “And we hope that something they learn here will help ignite the pursuit of a lifetime passion.”
