Summer Camps Kids Love!

We're leaders in the field of tutoring, so we understand how kids need support in different subject areas in order to achieve their potential in school and beyond. It could be writing camp or reading camp, where the focus is on making language more interactive and creative. It could be our reading or writing programs, which help kids explore language in a more creative and interactive way. Alternatively, it could be a STEM-focused camp where cool activities await, including creating a video game and programming a robot.

Whatever the subject, you can be sure that Sylvan's summer camps in California offer more enjoyment, more camaraderie and more confidence in preparation for that all-important next school year.
