San Francisco Curriculum Planning Resources and Summer Field Trip List
This guide was developed by the SFELC Summer Learning Workgroup to provide a list of local resources that can enhance Summer Learning efforts. Our goal in creating this resource was to support San Francisco’s summer program providers of school-age youth with a tool to help develop curriculum based on a wide variety of subjects and embrace our city as a classroom with incredible learning opportunities through field trips and expeditions. This work was also done in effort to support the State-wide Summer Matters Campaign and National Summer Learning Association with outreach and advocacy about the importance of summer learning. This document was developed for you with heart and passion from current summer providers to support your program in making summer learning enriching and exciting, and decrease summer learning loss for youth in San Francisco.
