Summer Dreamers

Pittsburgh Public Schools calls its summer school, Summer Dreamers Academy.

More than 1,500 students, mostly in elementary grades, get to attend a 27 day "summer camp" at no charge. The morning starts with an all camp meeting and then two academic periods -- literacy and math. The afternoons are for different activities. 

A favorite activity since 2010 has been SKWIM & Water Polo.

In 2020, ISCA helped to sponsor the cyber swim camp experience. Lesson plans, photos and insights from throughout the years are archived in a wiki, Info on digital badges, connected writing, quizzes and the online course is now being harbored as a service at the ISCA Library, see
