Summer Camps Kids Love!

As leaders in tutoring, we understand how kids need support in different areas to succeed in school and beyond. That's why we have a varied assortment of summer camp programs that make all topics more engaging. It could be a reading or writing program that makes language arts more creative and interactive. On the other hand, it could be one of our new STEM camps, which include cool, tech-focused activities like robot programming and video game creation!

Whichever program works best for your child, you can count on Sylvan's summer camps in Iowa to ensure more fun — and boosted confidence in preparation for the next school year.
