Summer Programs for Kids

2018 Summer Program

Bright Lights is a non-profit organization that has established a long tradition of offering engaging, high quality summer learning classes for elementary and middle school students (grade level as of April 1). With more than 100 classes offered each summer, there is something of interest for every student. Bright Lights is not affiliated with the public schools and has no residency requirements.

Bright Lights' 2018 main program site is at Holmes Elementary School, 5230 Sumner Street, where 75% of our classes are held. The International Program is at Lux Middle School, 7800 High Street, during Program Week 3 (June 18 - 22) from 9 AM - 12 PM. Our remaining classes are held at community sites. Directions are available for all Bright Lights class sites, bus stops and field trip locations. For additional information, visit FAQS, Policies or general registration information.

Classroom Assistants play a valuable role in the summer program as their work in the classroom helps ensure a successful week for the teacher and the student. Bright Lights welcomes students who have completed ninth grade, college students, and interested adults to apply to assist in the classroom.

Parents/guardians, grandparents and friends are invited to join their student(s) for a Friday Open House to share experiences from their Bright Lights week. Most open houses are held during the last 30 minutes of each half-day class or full-day camp.
