Fire Up Imagination and Creativity This Summer

At Sylvan, we design programs that focus on motivation, inspiration and creativity. That means an end to math and writing drills! We also like to see our students learn how to work as a team, so we encourage children to sign up with friends or meet new buddies during our fun, collaborative activities. Your child will be psyched to master new skills by using kid-friendly technology and accomplishing fun activities with other students.

Keep the learning going this summer: get in touch with your nearest Sylvan today to find out which programs are available in or near McHenry.

Our Academic Summer Camps For All Ages:

  • Early Reading (PreK-K): We mix interactive lessons and exciting games to help your child move his or her reading to the next level — and get ready to start elementary school.
  • Study Skills (Grades 4-12): Expect less stress and more high-fives as your child develops time management and organization skills that are perfect for school and beyond. 
  • Fit4Algebra (Grades 6-9): Our activities get kids in tip-top shape for taking on tricky algebra concepts to come. Learning algebra has never been this fun!
  • Writing (Grades 4-9): Building a portfolio of work is a great way to learn useful writing techniques, so our budding writers create everything from movie reviews to web copy.

Our STEM Summer Camps Include:

  • Robotics (Grades 1-6): Your son or daughter will build important STEM, problem solving and computer programming skills while having plenty of fun in the process. Every theme-based session stimulates imagination and creativity as kids learn how to design and animate a LEGO® robot. How cool is that?!
  • Engineering (Grades 1-8): Your child will have a great time completing fun, hands-on activities that look at how machines and soaring structures are built. The creations your child will get to design, evaluate and reconstruct are inspired by real-life structures from around the world!
  • Coding (Grades 3-8): Using our awesome Tynker™ technology, your child will learn how to program and design his or her own animated stories and video games that can be shared with friends! Younger kids will get to grips with the basics of coding, while older learners will explore Python Coding and JavaScript for more advanced programming.
