Build Momentum Over the Summer

As you look for summer camps and other fun activities to keep your kids busy during school breaks, why not consider Sylvan summer camps? They’re a great way to help your kids avoid summer learning loss and head back to school with confidence.

Making a small investment in summer learning can make a big difference in the fall, from growing your child’s skills and confidence, to giving your child an academic edge. Sylvan summer camps pick up where the classroom leaves off, blending the latest teaching methods, engaging activities and games, and a fun rewards system to inspire your child in learning.

When the summer ends, your child will step into the classroom ready and excited about the new school year, and you’ll know that choosing a Sylvan summer camp was a great investment.

How our summer camps work

Each Sylvan summer camp focuses on a specific skill or subject area — from math skills, to reading, to writing techniques — so your child can boost his or her confidence where needed.

Our camps are available for pre-k and kindergarteners up through high school students. Each camp is targeted to a few grade levels, so the topic of the camp is challenging for your child, but not overwhelming. Plus, by grouping kids of similar ages, your child can make new friends. Summer learning is fun learning!
