We’ve partnered with 17 community agencies across Delaware

Our 17 partnering agencies, located throughout Delaware, represent the power of collaboration to activate transformational change. Member Camps work tirelessly with SummerCollab and each other to ensure they are prepared to execute extraordinary summer learning opportunities for their campers. Camp Leaders work year-round to collaboratively plan to deliver exceptional and precise learning environments for their kids.

Reversing summer learning loss together

Our partners are true change agents working to raise the bar for kids. Working together, they demonstrate more is possible.  Working together, we share the belief that safe spaces, while needed, are simply not enough to provide our kids with opportunities for equal education. We believe our schools, and the teachers in them, are not alone accountable for the life outcomes of our children. Because of our network’s collective strengths, assets, and commitment, our community now has a powerful ally to help close the opportunity gap.
