April 1st. Interested students can apply here. Our camps are open to students in grades 4-12.

Research shows the importance of summer learning:

“On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of learning in math over the summer — and teachers have to give up weeks of class time, or more, to make up for that loss.” (link) “High-quality summer enrichment programs can help schools address summer learning loss. The Afterschool Alliance (2010) describes well-designed summer learning programs as those that increase achievement, enhance motivation for and engagement in learning, and develop and nurture new skills and talents.” (link)
