Summer Learning

2016 Programs in Tacoma-Pierce County

Summer is a great time to boost learning - hands-on or online, at the park or in a laboratory, educational or recreational. Over the summer, kids who read regularly or engage in day camps or other learning activities get an academic boost, while others can lose ground. Community partners are working together so that all Tacoma kids keep reading, grow through new experiences and maintain the skills they learned in school.
