Ohlone for Kids and Teens Summer Enrichment Program (OFK)
Our students love that every 1.5 hours, they get to switch
focus to another subject, so their day is never boring!
The Ohlone for Kids and Teens Summer Enrichment
Program has been serving youth in the Fremont community
since 1989. Although our largest group of students
tends to come from the local surrounding schools in
Fremont, our program sees students from many surrounding
cities, including Milpitas, Union City, Hayward,
Newark, Dublin, and Pleasanton.
The summer program started with only a few classrooms
but the number of classes offered each year has
grown from tens to hundreds, and the program now operates
at two sites. Our philosophy is giving local youth a safe place and fun options to explore and discover their
interests. We strike for diverse course offerings for the
entire age range served (4 th through 11 th grade).
While other camps may be heavily STEM-focused, we
believe that healthy youth development requires a diverse
array of activities. Therefore, we offer a lot of hands-on
learning on many things from English to SAT/PSAT prep,
from Economics to Art, from robotics to speech/debate,
from biology to sign language.
Most of our students choose four classes in one of our
three two-week sessions. Each class takes up one of the
four class periods of the day. The first class begins at
8:30am, there is a lunch from 11:45am-12:30pm, and their
last period ends at 3:45pm, after which students are either
picked up or, if they are 8 th grade or younger, they are eligible
for our extended-care program that ends at 5:30pm.
Most of our instructors are credentialed teachers, area
experts, or teachers who have extensive experience teaching
camps for the same age groups. Each teacher goes
through several interviews and after hire, finish a training.
Our students love that every 1.5 hours, they get to
switch focus to another subject, so their day is never boring!
Many other camps in the area are full-day and focus
on only one subject per day, so students often tell us that
our camp is more fun and interesting. Our child/teacher
ratio for most of our classes is 1:24, although there are
some classes with 16 or 20 students max. Because our program
allows families to build a personalized schedule for
their child, it offers ultimate flexibility, which is crucial
especially when children have more than one activity per
day. Each class is priced by itself, and with classes starting
at only $110, our program easily adjusts to all budgets.
Families who want classes for the entire six weeks would
register for 12 classes, but we also have families who register
their children for two classes in the morning or two
classes in the afternoon because they have other plans for
their children in the other half of the day.
Curriculum for all of our classes is closely monitored
to make sure that it is not lecture-style. We ask all instructors
to prepare projects and interactive activities in their
classes to make sure students are not only learning material
but also learning actively with their classmates
through collaborative work.
Due to the diversity of the Bay Area, we have a great
mix of backgrounds at our camps. At the same time, we
make sure the students are learning in a safe and engaging
environment, by making sure students know our
behavior expectations of them. We are quick to let parents
know of any behavioral incidents in the classroom, and
really work with them to get the child back on track in the
Overall, I would describe our summer program as a
balance of quality summer enrichment for your children
in an affordable customized manner. It offers flexibility
and really gives families the choice to personalize their
child's summer experience. Check us out today, at
