The 2014 camp will focus on water resources, using Project WET curricula

In cooperation with Rochester City School District (RCSD), GRSLA, SUNY College at Geneseo, and the Xerox Foundation, the Rochester Young Scholars Academy at SUNY Geneseo (RYSAG) offers Summer Camp and Saturday School opportunities to improve urban teacher training and make positive impacts on Rochester children. RYSAG's summer camp is an interdisciplinary, thematic and residential program directed at rising sixth- through eleventh-grade students. Rochester Young Scholars spend two weeks at the SUNY campus in Geneseo, NY, 25 miles from downtown Rochester. Planning for the project began in 2006 and the first camp experience C.S.I. (Crime Scene Investigation) took place in July 2007. Due to its success, students have returned to SUNY Geneseo in July 2008-2013, and in 2014 we will launch our newest camp adventure, using Project WET curricula.

During the day, students rotate between an interconnected series of subject-specific courses, as related to the theme of the camp.

After classes, students engage in recreational activities such as basketball, soccer, dance, music and headquarter time.

Each of the partners plays an essential role in making this experience possible. RYSAG is a licensed summer youth camp provider. The Xerox Center for Multicultural Teacher Education is the primary contact for all camp activities at SUNY Geneseo. The RYSAG faculty committee directs the camp and is comprised of SUNY Geneseo and RCSD officials. Geneseo undergraduate students, as well as RCSD staff will participate as counselors and teachers, as part of the SUNY Geneseo Xerox Center's mission to promote multicultural education at Geneseo.

RYSAG is made possible by the generous grants from the Xerox Corporation and the Rochester City School District.
