Description

What is the program?

Camp Common Ground is a 4 day summer enrichment program delivered in partnership with Fremont High School to lay the foundation for a successful transition to the new campus and the new level of learning and expectations. The daytime program directly addresses the need to engage transitioning students by creating an early and effective shared space - the “common ground.” The program’s overarching goal is for incoming students to feel safe, connected, excited, and motivated to partake in the full range of educational and positive social opportunities offered in high school.

Camp Common Ground integrates the four essential themes:

  • Safety – Students are introduced to the peers, teachers, and resources that are available to them in their new school community

  • Connection – Students gain a sense of belonging and begin to see themselves as a valued member of the community

  • Excitement – Students are energized and look forward to beginning their new school experience with less anxiety and fear

  • Motivation – Students are inspired to be successful students who are engaged
    and involved

Who can participate?

Camp Common Ground is specifically for incoming high school freshmen before the school year begins. The recruitment and selection of students is done in partnership with the Fremont High School in the preceding spring and summer. The program is designed to accommodate 50-100 students.

What do students learn?

As a result of participating in Camp Common Ground, students:

  • know more of their peers and upper grade students

  • are more knowledgeable about student support services and resources

  • feel more connected to their new school

  • are more prepared to engage with a diverse group of students

  • want to become involved with school co-curricular and/or extra-curricular activities

  • encourage positive peer interactions and healthy relationships

  • begin to think about their educational aspirations

  • want to help build a community of appreciation and responsibility
