New Programs for Summer 2018

17_074 3472 As pioneers in the world of summer programs, Summerfuel is always looking to create new and exciting opportunities for students, and we can’t wait for what Summer 2018 has in store. Two unique programs will be hitting New York City and Costa Rica this summer that we know you will love! Through an exclusive and one-of-a-kind partnership with Christie’s Education, our Art Now program offers a chance to dive right in to the fast-paced art world of today in one of the most vibrant cities in the world – New York. Go behind the scenes at one of the world’s preeminent auction houses and enjoy lectures and expert-guided visits to galleries, private collections, and world-class museums.  Explore topics from Contemporary Art and The Art Market to Art & The Law and The Auction House. Discover all that NYC has to offer, from The Guggenheim and sculpture parks to Times Square and Central Park. Another fantastic partnership brings us to the stunning land of Costa Rica, where students will work directly with a non-profit organization during our Soccer & Service program. Help improve the lives of indigenous children through soccer and service, and build your leadership, teamwork, and design thinking skills. Visit beaches and waterfalls, work on community projects, and become a true Global Citizen. Profits from every program are invested directly so you’ll experience first-hand how you are helping to change lives. We are excited for these new adventures that lie ahead, and we can’t wait to experience them with YOU!
