BANA Summer Camp

The BANA and Da Costa Hall summer school programs have served more than 15,000 students, since its inception in 1968. Today, parents from all ethnicities seek our nurturing and culture-sensitive approach to the education of their children.

The BANA summer school curriculum consists of early intervention in literacy and numeracy in the morning, and sports, cultural, and arts & crafts in the afternoon. Math, Science, English, and French, make up the academic courses in the morning, while the history of Blacks, arts & crafts, physical education, and cultural field trips are activities planned for the afternoon.
