NSLA knows last year was an exceptionally challenging season for summer learning programs, yet we want to acknowledge the many programs that pivoted during the crisis and found innovative ways to keep kids learning, safe and healthy. If you were unable to hold your program last summer, you are welcome to submit an application for your 2019 program.

Our Vision

NSLA’s vision is that every child, regardless of zip code, grows and thrives every summer.
