In cooperation with Rochester City School District (RCSD) and SUNY College at Geneseo, 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 seventh through tenth grade students. At camp, 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.
