Helping Kids Become Better Learners

Fun activities and exciting challenges turn our summer camps in South Elgin into transformative learning experiences. The skills your son or daughter masters at Sylvan — writing, studying and algebra skills, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills — can make a huge difference both inside and outside of the classroom. Prepare for a successful school year ahead without sacrificing fun: sign your child up for one of our summer camps today!

Bringing Young Imaginations to Life

Our programs are fun, interactive and highly motivating. No dull math or writing drills allowed! Boring math and writing drills are simply not our style! Additionally, most of our camps include group dynamics, so your son or daughter can choose to register with friends or make new ones as he or she works collaboratively with others to complete fun, stimulating activities. Your child will enjoy learning more than ever while learning new skills and conquering fun-filled challenges with his or her new BFFs!
