Celebrating 20 years of BEST Summer Programs

The Bethel Public Schools will be offering many new and dynamic programs. They hope to create a summertime adventure of discovery, fun, and learning that will build knowledge and enrich your child. The goal of the summer program is to encourage children to explore new skills, talents, and interests as well as maintain and sharpen academic skills, boost academic confidence, and reinforce the value of education.

The Enrichment programs are self-funding. The cost of each program is set to cover the cost of the teacher and the materials. You will be sending your child to a fun, safe, educational program.

Summer volunteer opportunities are available for students entering grade 9 and older. Students can choose to volunteer for session one (July 1- July 12 with no school on 7/4), session two (July 15- July 26) or both. The student must be available for each day in the session they choose, no exceptions. The volunteer hours are from 8:15- 12:15.
