Entering its 6th year in 2016, BRYTE Summer Camp is a central component of BRYTE's work. BRYTE Summer Camp is an intensive 5-week long academic enrichment program that serves over 100 of our students in first grade through early high school. BRYTE Camp is built on the values of asset-based, rather than deficit-based, learning, youth leadership, reciprocity, and building deep relationships with both students and families. By dedicating the mornings to academics and the afternoons to hands-on enrichment activities such as soccer, field trips, and swimming, camp fosters a supportive and inclusive community of ELL students who share the experience of resettlement and the challenges of acclimating to a new school system, language, and culture. In the past, BRYTE Camp was staffed by eight college- aged students, eight high school-aged refugee youth, and two student directors. In 2015, BRYTE Summer Camp entered a partnership with Providence Public Schools and the Dorcas International Institute, adding to the team four professional teachers, a licensed social worker, and a school nurse. 2015 also saw the launching of new component of camp, the BRYTE Leadership Institute, a program for 10-20 high-literacy high school-aged alumni of camp with a focus on arts and social justice education.
