What is The Center for Engagement?

The Center for Engagement is a critical part of our public purpose mission.  The Center currently offers high quality summer enrichment programs for both teachers and students in the Madison area, with plans to add school-year programming in the future.  Examples of programming can be found on our “Summer Camp” page. During the CFE’s first two summers of programming, our enrollment grew more than 400% and one out of every four children participated at a reduced cost.  In addition, several of our programs were the first of their kind to be offered anywhere in the country!  The Center continues to collaborate and partner with a variety of local, regional, and national schools, organizations and businesses.  Our fantastic teaching staff are from public and private schools, higher education, and a variety of both local and national organizations.  We work to match both their expertise and their learning goals with camps that will help them grow AND allow them to share their remarkable skills, craftsmanship and knowledge with our students.
