With summer fast approaching, you may be planning your summer activities, a vacation or perhaps you’ll be enjoying a staycation. Whichever the case, it is sure to create memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.


Guadalupe Center’s Summer Enrichment Program is planning to do the same and we need your help! More than 300 students are excitedly waiting for the program to begin on June 10. For six weeks, students in kindergarten through second grade will participate in a wide variety of academic support programs, enrichment activities and field trips. Your support helps students stay active

and maintain academic gains while having fun and creating memories that will last a lifetime.


Here are just some of the summer activities: 


      • Field trips to Ding Darling, Roberts Ranch, Paragon Movie Theater
      • Continued academic support
      • STEM Program
      • United Arts Council Dance & Drama programs
      • Presentations from Shy Wolf Sanctuary, Kowiachobee Animal Preserve, Big Cypress National Preserve, the Nutty Scientist
      • A visit from Collier County Sheriff’s Department Helicopter
      • University of Florida Dental Clinic screenings
      • Breakfast, lunch and a snack
      • And a whole lot of fun


Our After-School Tutoring and Summer Enrichment Program provides a  safe and educational experience for children when school isn’t in session. Your support provides hope and changes the lives of these children forever helping them to achieve academic excellence with the goal of economic independence.
