Summer Camps

Summer Opportunities

Camp Jumpstart is a partnership between Putnam County School District and Palatka Housing Authority. Camp Jumpstart is a FREE comprehensive K-6 program that offers academics to promote growth and avoid regression over the summer. Summer learning programs are proven to reinforce and build new skills, sending young people back to school in August ready to learn.

Summer learning programs such as Camp Jumpstart are established to maintain and advance students' academic and social growth. This is sometimes referred to as the summer slide. Students who are not engaging in learning daily can forget what they learned during the school year. An academic summer program incorporating enrichment experiences is the perfect way to engage students and ensure they don't forget the critical skills they have already learned. Camp Jumpstart aims to improve students' academic achievement by exposing students in rural communities to STEAM and other supporting educational curriculums.

PCSD is committed to delivering comprehensive community-centered programming based on students' needs. It ensures that all students and families access academically and socially enriching and meaningful summer experiences.
