Dear Bridgeport Residents, The City, through its Lighthouse After School program, is pleased to present you with this publication, highlighting the numerous programs available for children and their families to learn, play and grow throughout the summer. We hope you take advantage of the wonderful enrichment opportunities our area service providers and organizations are offering.

On behalf of all service providers, many thanks to the public, private, and corporate sponsors of the programs offered within this publication. Without your financial support and commitment, we could not continue to provide such valuable services to Bridgeports children and families. We would also like to thank the many volunteers who on a daily basis support all of our efforts in working with young people by sharing their time, talents, and expertise. It truly makes a world of difference! Sincerely,
