OUR STORY

SummerCollab specializes in empowering community-based agencies to execute high quality summer learning programs. Through intentional interviewing, quality training and precise placement, our team members are equipped to work with our partner sites to bring more choices and more chances to children in the state of Delaware during the summer months. Two thirds of the achievement gap is attributable to summer learning inequity. With your help, we can Make Summer Smarter.

Tyler’s Camp, SummerCollab’s middle school academy, offers Delaware’s rising 4th through 8th graders a unique summer experience. Each Tyler’s Camp location targets a wide variety of students by providing arts, hands-on technology, and athletic options, alongside targeted literacy support. With this, students have the opportunity to see growth in their motivation, self-esteem, critical thinking, leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
