Summer Cohesion

Summer Cohesion is a fee-based, six-week summer, drop-in, recreational, educational, and cultural Chemung County Summer Cohesion Logoenrichment program, which provides children, ages 4 through 12, with a safe, structured, and fun summer. This school-based program takes place at numerous locations throughout Chemung County at various sites located throughout Chemung County and operates Monday through Friday. 


 Youth participate in daily activities such as arts and crafts, indoor/outdoor games, attend special performances, and travel to local libraries, parks, and museums. At each site, children learn about water safety, nature, life skills, and cultural enrichment - just to name a few.  Throughout the summer, traveling programs visit each site to provide special indoor and outdoor activities.
