When Miami-Dade County Public Schools are closed for the summer, the City of Hialeah has you covered. Parents will have peace of mind knowing their child or teen is having a blast in a safe and welcoming environment. The City of Hialeah has three types of summer camps to choose from.
The Creative Learning and Play (CL&P) Afterschool programs are held for students ages 5-12 at ten convenient locations throughout the city. The camp includes literacy tutoring by certified teachers, enrichment activities, and indoor/outdoor games at a low cost price of $15.00 a week per child. Registration for the CL&P Afterschool porgram is currently being accepted from 9:00 AM-5:00 PM at the Education and Community services office located at 7400 W. 24th Avenue. This program is funded in part by The Children's Trust.
The Young Leaders with Character Afterschool Program (YLC) Academic Achievers and STEAM Ahead Program serves teens ages 11-18 years old from the following schools: Hialeah Educational Academy, Jose Marti MAST Academy, Hialeah Middle School, Palm Springs Middle School, and Henry H. Filer Middle School. The afterschool programs include academic tutoring by certified teachers, PBL projects, enrichment activities and indoor/outdoor games. Registration for the YLC programs is currently held at each of the site locations from 3:30-5:30 PM. The cost is FREE due to funding from 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC).
The STEP AHEAD Afterschool Program offers FREE afterschool activities for Miami-Dade County Public School (M-DCPS) high school students with special needs. In partnership with M-DCPS and Best Buddies, the program facilitates the shift from high school to the workforce through learning opportunities, enrichment activities, social skills lessons, job training and employment support. Hours are Monday-Thursday, from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM. Program includes an employment stipend. Space is limited and registration is currently open. This program is funded in part by The Children's Trust.
