Spectrum Summer Programs at Tandem Friends

For over 40 years, our Spectrum Summer Programs have offered rising 1st graders through rising 7th graders wonderful and innovative classes and creative possibilities and provided summer teaching and leadership opportunities for local artists, including many Tandem alums and older students. For six weeks every summer, our campus has come alive with the relaxed energy of younger students taking a deep dive into creative self-expression.
