Camp Beacon

ROOSEVELT BEACON SUMMER CAMP

The Richmond Neighborhood Center Beacon at Roosevelt Middle School is offering several FREE, in-person summer programs where students can have fun, stretch their legs after a year of distance learning, and get ready to thrive when they return to school this fall! Read more and register below.

 

STEP UP

Roosevelt MS and the Beacon are committed to every student starting middle school on the right foot. This year we will welcome every 6th- and 7th-grade RMS student a spot in one our three Step Up events. Step Up is a 3-day program to introduce students to the Roosevelt campus, have them meet some of our amazing teachers and Beacon staff, and introduce them to some of their peers from other schools before we begin in August. Students participate in games, club-like activities and locker relay activities.

DATES: June 14-16, June 17-21, June 22-24
TIME: 9AM-12PM (with optional extended program focused on MS field trips and physical activity from 12-3PM)
Registration Opening Soon

 

LEARNING ACADEMIES

In response to the effects of distance learning, Roosevelt MS and the Beacon are offering Learning Academies that reconnect students to academic motivation with fun and relevant activities. Based on available staff, teachers and Beacon staff will develop a 4-day unit that addresses some of the learning loss that occurred this past year, while at the same time engaging students with academic literacy.

DATES: June 28-July 1
TIME: 9AM-12PM
Registration Opening Soon

 

CAMP BEACON: POST-PANDEMIC PASSPORT

This summer camp should feel like videos of cows being released from a barn after a long snowy winter. After a long year of distance learning, a city closed down and a lack of social connection, our middle schoolers deserve to get out and about in a safe way. Participants will participate in community-building and choice-based activities with field trips to explore all of San Francisco’s beautiful neighborhoods.

DATES: July 5-23
TIME: 9AM-3PM

SUMMER TOGETHER LEAGUES

Middle schoolers are missing their chances to meet and compete! This summer, participants will use the method “Skill, Drill, Play” to condition and practice skills in basketball and flag football leagues with cross-city competition against other Beacons weekly.

DATES: July 5-23
TIME: 3PM-5PM

STUDENT OF COLOR ALLIANCE LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE

The Beacon has a long commitment to supporting BIPOC students with our identity-based clubs. This summer, rising 8th-grade students will practice event and meeting planning and facilitation to receive a gift card incentive, field trips and cultural exchange activities and to prepare for their roles as next year’s club leaders and Student of Color Alliance delegates.

DATES: July 5-23
TIME: 3PM-5PM
Rising 8th graders should email their identity-based club leaders or natarenob@sfusd.edu if interested.
