Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

Arts

Many careers require the abilities to communicate, collaborate, be creative and think critically. By integrating the arts into our summer camp, we encourage your child to learn and practice these valuable skills.

Our Arts camps include:


Books are gateways to new worlds filled with interesting characters and stories. Authors in Training offers your child the chance to bring a world, its characters and their stories to life. We’ll also dive into other areas of literature, such as poetry and non-fiction. Younger children can narrate or draw their stories, connecting meaning to pictures and words.

If you cut Earth in half, you would see several layers. The movement of the layers of the Earth formed the mountains and volcanoes, which are part of the top layer, called the crust. And rocks?
