Summer at RE: Camp by the Bay highlights a great summer

Whether sailing, swimming, dancing, playing sports, running science experiments, exploring the bay or enjoying the endless activities available during Summer at RE, children of all ages made the most of Ransom Everglades’ campuses and classrooms in June and July.
The highlight: the return of the legendary Camp by the Bay for children entering kindergarten through fifth grade; that program drew nearly 750 registrants during the course of the summer and provided opportunities in art, music, water sports, gym activities and more. RE also welcomed students in grades 5-8 to its Pine Knot Scholars program, which combines special academic experiences with exploration in the natural world.  
Children also enjoyed a new Makerspace camp, sports camps and academic classes including a course on college essay writing. At the middle school, Breakthrough Miami Scholars enjoyed a mix of time in the classroom and pure fun under the direction of Breakthrough Teaching Fellows – including 15 current or former RE students.  

And a major point of pride for Ransom Everglades was the availability of the Broad REACH Pool to several children’s community organizations – who were also provided with RE lifeguards and swimming coaches – throughout the summer. More than 400 children from four community organizations including Breakthrough Miami used the pool for more than 40 lessons. 
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
