Monroe Summer Programs
PLEASE NOTE: As of June 8, Northampton Community College has made the difficult decision to cancel all on-ground Horizons for Youth summer camp programs for the summer of 2020 due to community health and safety reasons in this era of COVID-19. Our priority has always and continues to be camper and community safety. In these changing and uncertain times we want to ensure maximum safety for our campers, their families, instructors and staff, and our community at large.
Please visit our NEW ONLINE offerings including Black Rocket technology classes and other summer favorites! Look for new classes that will be offered in July and August.
