- The camps are open for anyone. They do not have to attend the school the camp is at or attend any STAR programs during the school year. It’s an open camp for the community!
- We need a certain number of students to enroll in order to run the program. Post-lockdown, newer families often don’t know about the STAR camps, so it’s also very helpful to spread the word!
- There will not be a program like this held at the Balboa campus this year.
The new ELOP program is now full but applications for the waitlist are still being accepted. Physical applications for the waitlist are being accepted in the STAR classroom.
If you have questions about our STAR Program, feel free tor each out to Ellie Lang-Ree (they/them) our Balboa Magnet STAR Site Director: (310) 386-6539.
