SUMMER CAMPS AT SYLVAN
Summer camps at Sylvan offer the best possible combination of fun, creativity, and learning for students in grades 1 through 9! STEM-focused camps in robotics and coding are perfect for students with an interest in engineering and science. Or if getting ready for the next grade is your priority, our academic camps are offered in August.
Robotics Camps (grades 2-6) $150: Working with a buddy, your child will enjoy fun, hands-on projects that include building and programming LEGO® robots. Each session encourages creativity and imagination as kids brainstorm, build, and experiment to answer questions or win friendly competitions.
Video Game Design and Computer Coding (grades 3-8) $200: Your child will learn computer programming through fun projects like animating stories and creating video games. Kids have access to thousands of backgrounds, props, and sound effects to help bring their creations to life while learning problem-solving, planning, and coding skills.
Writing Boot Camp (grades 4-9) and Math Boot Camp (grades 6-9) $150: One of the best ways to get ready for the new school year is to dust off those rusty writing or math skills, so academic camps run at the end of the summer to help your child hit the ground running when classes start. Writing students practice the writing process with a variety of entertaining projects while math students work on foundational skills and problem-solving strategies.
Our week-long camps are offered throughout the summer in the morning from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Special prices apply if paid before June 1, 2017.
