Our Action-Packed Camps

We're leaders in the field of tutoring, so we understand how kids need support in different subject areas in order to achieve their potential 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. Alternatively, it could be a STEM-focused camp where cool activities await, including creating a video game and programming a robot.

Whatever the subject, you can be sure that Sylvan's summer camps in New York offer more enjoyment, more camaraderie and more confidence in preparation for that all-important next school year.
