The Quad Manhattan Summer Program for 2e Kids | Kids Out and About Pittsburgh

The Quad Manhattan Summer Program for 2e Kids

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/07/2020
In lieu of COVID-19 closures and for the safety of our staff and campers, The Quad Manhattan Summer program is going virtual! ​We are excited for all of the opportunities that online programming has to offer twice-exceptional kids this summer. Browse the news and program information below, updates are posted weekly! This is what we've been training for since the start, without knowing it! Our individualized, strengths-based approach with built-in flexibility and support is key to the successful launch of a virtual program. As always, children will receive a visual schedule that explicitly walks them through every single day and every activity.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

We are building in flexibility and of course cannot take your children into public safely, so we are asking our parents to describe their specific needs for outdoor time in this survey. Additionally, we have designed movement activities and built-in breaks to accommodate children on a case-by-base basis.
