#SendAKidToCamp is back for 2020 and this time we’ve gone digital!
We are excited to announce that for the first time we will be running a FREE 8-week online summer camp July 6 – August 28 for all Sistema Toronto students.
As you may know, Sistema Toronto’s program typically runs for 37 weeks during the school year. However, given the closure of overnight summer camps and other summer activities, Sistema Toronto is committed to providing an enriching summer experience for our students. The interactive nature of our online sessions will allow Sistema Toronto students to connect socially with their friends, occupy their time with meaningful activities, and enable their teachers to check in with them on a regular basis throughout the summer.
Similar to our current online program, we will invite students to participate in a combination of large and small group Music & Movement, strings, and choir classes with their Sistema teachers and classmates for 4-5 hours each week.
This new Summer initiative comes with financial challenges since we had not budgeted for programming over the summer. We invite you to help us send a kid to (online) camp! For the month of June, every donation received gives us a chance of winning $20,000 through Canada Helps’ “Great Canadian Giving Challenge” so your donation dollars can go even further!
The Sistema Online Sessions (SOS) Initiative - Online Music Summer Camp is made possible by Robert and Ellen Eisenberg, Founder, The Jordan Family Foundation, and is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and Toronto Foundation.
