The Children’s Trust is committed to improving the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County by making strategic investments in their futures. With that mission in mind, The Children's Trust is pleased to offer this comprehensive Summer & After-School Programs Guide . The Children's Trust hopes that parents and caregivers alike find the information to be helpful and informative.
Investing in summer camps and after-school programs has been and remains a cornerstone of Children’s Trust funding. The Children's Trust funded programs and many others in the community are included in the listings section of this guide. For both summer and after-school, The Children’s Trust nurtures high-quality programs for children around the county and especially in historically underserved communities. All of The Children's Trust funded programs are inclusive of children with disabilities.
Quality summer and after-school programs support working families by keeping children safe, and by inspiring learning of all kinds. Fun, engaging activities — from arts to sports to technology — promote personal and social awareness, fitness, and academic skills. Summer camps fill a critical void in the summer months, especially for working parents, offering an array of activities that foster learning and literacy, fitness, and healthy social interaction.
