Our Exciting Selection of 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. For example, it could be a reading or writing camp that helps your child understand language in a more creative and interactive way. 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.
