Camp Phoenix is summer school, reimagined. We empower low-income youth to overcome the summer opportunity gap by blending the essence of sleep-away camp, with the rigors of discovery-based learning. Through joyful academics, enrichment, and community building, our unique, overnight summer immersion program propels middle-school students to reach their fullest potentials as leaders, achievers, and community change agents. Founded in 2012, Camp Phoenix brings low-income youth to its campsite in San Gregorio each summer, where mornings are spent in common core-aligned, exploratory math and literacy groups. Throughout the day campers engage in outdoor and social-emotional learning: sleeping under the stars, cooking breakfast as a team, picking berries from local farms, and peering into tide pools at the nearby beaches. Through the powerful combination of academics and overnight camp, we uniquely position our campers to make growth in academics, while also growing their identities as individuals and young leaders.
