Community Service (Grades 7-10)
1 week sessions 9:00am - 3:00pm $310
Sidwell Summer offers a Community Service program that provides hands-on service experience to participants to help build life skills. Campers will work at various sites throughout the week (primarily active outdoor work). Campers will work with their peers and their trip leader on projects and activities. Campers will have a time for quiet reflection to think about or speak on the activities they completed.
Community Service Hours: Up to 20 hours, varying based on week/services.
All Community Service Program participants must have an immunization record on file with Sidwell Summer before the program begins.

Activities will largely entail outdoor work. Participants should bring a bag lunch daily.
