As the Paterson Public School District resumes in-person schooling, most schools and childcare programs are operating on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students have some school days in person, and some school days remotely. CAMP YDPs Learning Lab is a new program that provides virtual learning and childcare options for children from K through 5th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning.


  • 2020/2021 school year, CAMP YDP has operated from 8AM - 3PM, MONDAY - FRIDAY as a virtual learning center for students in the Paterson Public Schools 

  • Meals provided

  • Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools

  • Follow specific class schedules of each student

  • All programs adopt “High Five” practices, which are:

  • Wearing masks and daily health screening for children and staff, 

  • Frequent hand washing,

  • Cleaning and disinfecting protocols

  • Physical distancing, and, 

  • "Cohorting" that maintains group stability from school to program and small group size.
