About D-E 360° D-E 360° is one of four divisions of Dwight-Englewood School, offering open-enrollment courses for enrichment, advancement, or for credit. Courses are designed to be multidisciplinary in nature offering learning across a variety of disciplines for different age groups (including adults).

Some offerings require specific prerequisites and/or past experience in particular disciplines, and others are open to all students regardless of background. Among the D-E 360° the core offerings are Lower School AfterCare & Enrichment (ACE), D-E International, DELTA (Dwight-Englewood Learning and Teaching Academy (for Adults), Middle School Enrichment and Summer Connections.

D-E 360° Summer Connections (SC) 2020 is in session June 29 through August 7, 2020! Get ready to LEARN BOLDLY with us this Summer 2020! For Summer Connections 2020, we have an exciting theme for our youngest campers (ages 3-10): Visions of Greatness. We’re inspired by the summer Olympics and the people in the world around us, which will make for an exciting season. Campers in Preschool through Grade 4 in the Discoveries, Adventures & Junior Camp programs will earn medals as they examine success through the weekly-themed lenses of sports, the arts, science, literature, history and social justice. Our campers will experience first hand lessons around what builds determination, creative expression, innovation and design. Add to that, there are a multitude of fun Enrichment as well as academic offerings for our Middle School students, our Scholars program for High School students who want academic advancement and college test prep, as well as Immersives as an elevated option for those who want to pursue their passions. At Summer Connections, there is something for everyone. We are the only camp in the region that designs programs for campers through our Enrichment program (grades 5-9) to build a summer schedule that uniquely taps into their personal interests. Each week, Enrichment campers may select from a catalog of offerings that cover a myriad of fun topics from athletics and cooking to debate and engineering. With last year’s major construction at completion, we will be using the full campus, including D-E’s new stateof-the art teaching kitchen in our Middle School building for Enrichment cooking classes. Our Immersive programs are also an opportunity for campers to delve into topics for self-exploration and leadership development. Masterlevel teachers engage students in a collaborative environment to provide experiential learning that will lay the foundation for further exploration beyond summer. Over past summers, we introduced STEM Challenge, Entrepreneurs Academy, Explosive Science, Young Visionaries for budding artists, Community Service/Leadership, Heading for Broadway, Wall Street & U, as well as an express course in coding all of which will continue this season. String Society, now in its thirteenth year, offers students the opportunity to take private lessons and to have an extended day for musical growth. On a different note, a few new offerings including Debate Boot Camp, Art & Design Studio, and Animal Behavior & Zoology will get students’ strategic and creative juices flowing while developing a depth of knowledge and skill.

Information Enrollment for D-E 360° Summer Connections is open to all students and provides a variety of opportunities for students in Preschool (age 3) through Grade 12 from public, parochial, and independent schools. A combination of introductory, enrichment, and advancement courses in a number of academic disciplines, the arts, and athletics, allows for diversity of study. The SC faculty is comprised of DwightEnglewood School teachers and carefully selected educators from other schools. Small class sizes ensure opportunities for personal attention and the academic progress of each student. At Summer Connections, a part of the experience provided by the school is to set behavioral expectations clearly and to help students learn to follow these expectations.

What you can expect from DE360° Summer Connections Camps and Classes When your child attends a D-E 360° program, you can expect a safe, caring, supportive, educational environment that fosters independence and a desire to learn in all participants. Knowing that all children need support to be successful, we do our best to accommodate all children who are interested in our programs. While we offer top-notch programs, we may not be the best program or have the right supports in place for all children, especially those requiring special medical, behavioral, or social support. Please contact us with questions about whether SC programs offer the right experience and supports for your child. Email us at summerprograms@d-e.org.

What DE360° Summer Connections Community expects from campers and students We expect that all participants will demonstrate care, respect, and responsibility at all times while with us. We expect participants to exhibit self-control, to be nice to others, and to follow simple instructions. Disciplinary actions are seen as educational rather than simply punitive. In the event of inappropriate actions by a participant at camp, a warning will be issued. If the action continues, the child will sit out of

the ongoing activity and a parent/guardian will be notified. Fighting; swearing; disrespect to a director, faculty, staff member, or another child; abusive language; physical abuse; stealing, etc., are actions contrary to DE360° Summer Connections behavior goals and will be looked upon as cause for termination with no refund of fees. All participants are expected to abide by the rules and regulations outlined in the current Dwight-Englewood School Handbook. A hard copy of this handbook will be made available upon request.

regular academic year. Three units are the equivalent of ½ Carnegie credit and are awarded to minor courses that meet two or three times a week during the regular academic year.

Course descriptions and syllabi for advancement courses are available upon request.

Food

There are no prorated fees or refunds for campers arriving after the start of the session, leaving before its completion, or missing any time during camp. D-E 360° Summer Connections fees are non-transferable. Refunds will be made only with the presentation of a medical rejection slip or a doctor’s certificate before the camper is scheduled to attend camp.

Food is provided on campus through D-E’s Dining Services. We have two dining halls: one in Drapkin Hall for younger campers that will serve hot food and provide snacks and the other in the Klein Campus Center’s Wharton Lessin Dining Hall for Scholars, Enrichment, and Immersive participants. Hot lunch as well as bag lunches are included in the price for those students in the Discoveries, Adventures and full-day Immersive Programs.

Schedule Changes For Enrichment students, once a class has begun, schedule changes may only be made by the end of the first day. Our Operations Team is available to help students make different selections.

“Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) Designated Courses Technology has become part of our program’s culture in all classrooms. Over the years, we have had an ever-increasing number of requests for students to bring their own devices to D-E 360° Summer Connections (SC) programs. Since our goal is for all teachers to integrate authentic use of technology in classrooms, we are encouraging students to bring technology to SC for educational purposes. Students in classes designated as BYOD will be expected to bring a laptop that meets minimum requirements or any brand Chromebook. A tablet with keyboard is also acceptable, but we find that the mobile platforms of these devices limit the functionality in some learning activities. Students who enroll in courses designated BYOD must identify during the registration process whether they commit to bringing a personal device to SC or whether they would need to have the program supply a device for the course.

Students may bring any brand Chromebook. The Chromebook MUST have wireless internet to function. They may also bring a PC laptop with Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system, and minimum 4 GB RAM of memory. Antivirus protection is the owner’s responsibility.

Summer Connections Discoveries & Adventures programs offer

age-appropriate activities that are carefully designed so that every child has a chance for observation and discovery. These full-day weekly programs (8:15 AM – 3:00 PM) offer academic courses that include Math, Language Arts, and Science. We also believe that creative endeavors should be a part of a young child’s life. As a result, performing and visual arts like music, dancing, painting, and storytelling constantly find themselves in the curriculum. To balance these activities, physical exercise in the form of physical education and recess are also included in the schedule. Dedicated faculty and an animated staff complete the picture by providing the children with a safe and fun atmosphere where children of all ages can grow. Be sure to sign up for Aftercare when registering for camps, if it is needed. If you have an emergency drop-in to Aftercare, it will be charged with a higher rate of $60 per day.

and social justice, history, the arts as well as sports. With an abundance of hands-on learning activities and on-campus and off-campus field trips, we will inspire curiosity about what it takes to be great. Campers will don lenses of

discovery and adventure as they examine GOAT (Greatest of All Time) moments, artifacts and structures. And it’s a Summer Olympics year; we’ll end the camp experience with our own Olympic-style field games. Our fun learning experiences will build foundations for literacy, creativity, and academic exploration. Equally important, our campers will master life lessons from their time here with us: 1) the meaning of cooperative work; 2) the impact of the past and how culture and technology have played roles in today’s world; and 3) a sense of wonder such that they develop a lasting appreciation of all our worlds - real and imagined.
