Nebraska Bright Lights
Bright Lights is a non-profit organization that has established a long tradition of offering engaging, high quality summer learning camps for elementary and middle school students (grade level as of February 27, 2021). With more than 100 camps offered each summer, there is something of interest for every student. Bright Lights is not affiliated with the public schools and has no residency requirements.
Bright Lights’ 2021 main program site is at Holmes Elementary School, 5230 Sumner Street, where 75% of our camps are held. Program Week 2 (June 14 – 18, 2021) focusing on camps for grades 6-8 will also be held at Holmes Elementary School from 9 AM – 12 PM. Our remaining camps are held at community sites. Directions are available for all Bright Lights camp sites and field trip locations. Bright Lights is a minds-on, hands-on environment and we encourage your student to be dressed for fun, active play and learning. Movement breaks and recess will be part of the daily routine. Specific instructions about camp attire (costumes, theme days, etc.), special items (such as a stuffed animal or doll) and craft supplies (cans, paper tubes, etc.) that can be brought from home will be communicated by the teacher the week before camp is scheduled to begin.
