Working on individualized programs in the mornings, students can advance in subjects like reading, writing, science and math, allowing them to explore areas of interest or get ahead in a subject that they find challenging.  Afternoons are spent celebrating and enjoying all the fun that summer has to offer! Activities like, hiking, sports, swimming, outdoor games, art and field trips are included in themed weeks (Outdoor Adventure, Space, Budding Artists, STEM, Drama & Music, Animal Adventure, and Sports).

Let us share our passion of sports with you and your family this summer!
