Our Action-Packed Camps

We're leaders in tutoring, so we appreciate that different kids need different kinds of support to do their best in school and beyond. That's why we provide a diverse selection of summer camps to make all kinds of subjects more engaging. It could be writing camp or reading camp, where the focus is on making language more interactive and creative. Or it could be one of our exciting new STEM-focused camps, where kids get to program robots, create video games and take part in other exciting activities.

Whichever program is best, you can rest easy knowing that our summer camps in California lead to more fun, more friendship and much greater confidence when school resumes.
