The Sutton Scholars High School Enrichment Program helps Baltimore City high school students become confident, competent and capable contributors to their communities by equipping them with the life skills that are essential for academic, workplace, and personal success.

Students who are selected into the program receive a stipend to participate in an engaging and fun six-week summer program, during which skilled instructors use a targeted curriculum to teach leadership, communication skills, financial literacy, and tools for success, all while helping the scholars develop practical projects and age-appropriate strategies aimed at Building a Better Baltimore.

Throughout the school year, scholars come together on a regular basis to participate in stimulating enrichment activities that contribute to their personal growth, expose them to new ideas and expand their social and professional networks.

Summer Camp

Every summer, Sutton Scholars spend a week at the Claggett Center on the beautiful banks of the Monacacy River in historic Adamstown, MD.

The Claggett Center offers our scholars a residential camp experience that gives them the opportunity to forge lasting bonds with their peers and instructors while developing leadership and other essential life skills.

Whether zip lining, kayaking, navigating the ropes course, or cooling off in the pool, Claggett gives the scholars the chance to get away from the city and just have fun!  While there are plenty of classic camp activities like campfires, karaoke and skits, there’s lots of time to explore nature and engage in friendly but competitive sporting activities like softball, volleyball, or basketball.
