Our Fun-Filled Summer Camps

As leaders in tutoring, we understand how kids need support in different areas to succeed in school and beyond. It could be writing camp or reading camp, where the focus is on making language more interactive and creative. For example, it could be a reading or writing camp that helps your child understand language in a more creative and interactive way. Or, it could be one of our new STEM-focused camps featuring cool activities like programming a robot or creating a video game.

Whatever the topic, Sylvan's summer camps in Iowa deliver more fun, more camaraderie and more confidence going into the next school year.
