In the summer of 2018, Tamie Tominaga traveled from her hometown in Brazil to attend the Yale Summer Academy in New Haven Connecticut. It was a life changing experience for her. The program opened her up to a new way of thinking, a prestigious academic environment that challenged her and friends she met from all walks of life. Now, Tamie is focused on getting out of her comfort zone, something that had eluded her before her time at Yale.

We are going to talk about ten things you can do as a parent to help your child make friends at camp - even though you can't be there with them. While your kids are exploring, learning and playing at summer camp, you will not be there with your child. This can be a startling thought for many parents, especially if it is the first time their child has attended a summer program.
Rachel Solden, a 17 year old from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, has spent the last four summers attending three of JKCP's different camps and programs. In 2014, she spent four weeks at our Xploration Summer Camp at Haverford College. The following two summers, Rachel spent several weeks at our Enrichment Summer Camp at Villanova University. Most recently, she spent four weeks throughout this past summer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Art: Summer at Penn Program. Over her four years with us, Rachel has really come into her own as a young adult. She attributes JKCP for helping her become the confident, independent woman she is today.
For those of you who don’t know me, I am Haverford College’s (unofficial) mascot – the Black Squirrel. The College has always been known as the Fords. However, in the 1980’s I came into the picture when the baseball team noticed a bunch of my ancestors on campus and saw us to be a great representation of what their team and college stands for – unique, energetic and hard working individuals.
Imagine a hands-on, interactive summer experience with no boundaries or borders. A place where you get to use your imagination, creativity, knowledge and skills to explore topics you love. After listening to your feedback, we have worked hard to create the new Xploration program at Haverford College, and are extremely excited to be introducing the newest addition to the program, the Collaboration Lab. Here's how it works.
