What’s the Scoop?


Chicago Lights Summer Day is a six-week program that provides a safe place for 125 first through ninth graders to learn and engage in academic classes and arts instruction each summer and get a jump-start on the upcoming school year and develop exciting, new talents while having fun. At the end of the session, students present a dynamic, multicultural arts performance for the community.
