CEF Summer Programs

Registration is now open for SLICE of Credit and SLICE of Summer ONLINE!

Because education is often what takes place outside the classroom, CEF is dedicated to providing summer enrichment opportunities for TK-12th graders. Each summer in order to meet the needs of everyone in the community, we offer multiple programs through SLICE of Summer including (for the second year) our for credit classes for high school students in partnership with University of La Verne.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and uncertainty about how groups can gather and availability of district facilities, all in-person enrichment classes for 2020 SLICE of Summer have been cancelled. Limited online opportunities are being offered in the 2020 SLICE of Summer ONLINE program.

Camp Galileo Has Been Cancelled

A Message from CEF's SLICE of Summer Committee:

On Thursday, April 16th Camp Galileo informed CEF of their decision to cancel their Summer 2020 program due to the ongoing threat of Covid-19. We were very excited about this year's expanded format and new location and hoped that this would not be the case. However, Claremont Educational Foundation is only the host partner of Galileo Camps, thus their decisions and policies are out of our hands. We have no additional information regarding Galileo's cancellation policy or plans moving forward. Please address all questions or concerns to Galileo Innovation Camps at 1-800-854-3684.
