Even though it’s summer break, Vista students have an abundance of school programs to keep them busy. And Vista Unified schools are even busier! From district-wide programs to school-specific camps, workshops and events, VUSD continues to serve our community and reduce “summer slide,” when students lose some of their academic gains from the previous year.

Here are some of the many things happening around our district throughout the summer:

DISTRICT-WIDE PROGRAMS:  From literacy and STEM support to Math Soccer Camp, and from extended learning opportunities to IB and AP placement support, the Vista Unified School District has many programs throughout the summer to support learners of all learning levels.

Summer Meals:  It wouldn’t be summer without summer meals from WaveCrest Cafe! Our acclaimed WaveCrest Cafe nutrition services department delivers the USDA’s summer meals program to 16 different locations across our district’s communities. We provide fresh, healthy, delicious, and free meals to all students 18 years and under, all summer long. Best of all, no forms, paperwork, or hurdles. Just show up! Click the image above, or here for information about locations, dates, times and menus.

Special Education Extended School Year…  We continue to offer special education services at California Avenue Elementary and Vista Adult Transition Center throughout the summer.

  • June 18 – July 13: California Avenue Elementary
  • June 18 – July 13: Vista Academy (of Visual and Performing Arts)

QCamp: Design Thinking Camp For Middle School Students …  VIDA Middle School hosts three weeks of free, high quality coding and “maker” experience inspired by Qualcomm’s “Thinkabit Lab”. QCamp is open to incoming 6th grade students at any of the 5 VUSD middle schools. Participants will be randomly selected from application pools for each VUSD middle school.
