Washington, CT - Glenholme officially set summer into motion with their annual balloon launch. The students and staff gathered in the shade of the school’s courtyard on the unusually hot day of July 6 to enjoy the camaraderie of group activities including bidding ado to their biodegradable balloons.  The 2010 Summer Program has plenty excitement in store for students; the after school on-campus activities included the arts, drama, music, team sports, go-karts, equestrian program, and the creative campus-wide competition known as color war.

In addition to the traditional summer activities, there is a wide array of off-campus activities and adventures which are available to all summer participants from community service activities around the area to week-long travel adventures. Community Service remains active with projects such as the Judea Community Garden in Washington and trail preservation at Flanders Nature Center. Travel adventures provide a number of week-long trips to venues such as Cape Cod, Mystic Seaport, Williamsburg PA and the western equestrian experience at a traditional dude ranch, as well as tent camping trips for boys and girls.

The campus is also energized with the abundance of Parents’ Weekend auction activities including exciting day trips to Six Flags and Lake Compounce, Dancing with the Stars, WFSB and NBC Studio tours, pool parties, Broadway, STOMP, and Yankees and Bluefish baseball games. The auction activities provide unique opportunities for students to enjoy adventures otherwise not available and are the result of the generosity and support of many Glenholme parents.

The conclusion of the Summer Program in late August centers around the arts. Each year, the Arts Program delivers a spectacular theatrical performance for an audience of hundreds, including students, staff, family and friends of Glenholme. This year’s production is anticipated to be another sensational success
