Our hands-on approach and expertise make this camp unique, whether you are a good runner trying to become great or a novice runner just learning the sport. Our coaches possess deep skills, both in the sport of running and as educators working with children. Your child will leave our camp at the end of the week or end of the summer a better athlete and a more confident student. We teach the campers about running, discipline, and motivation.

Kids will become comfortable sharing their work with a supportive, immediate audience and will benefit from collaboration and feedback from their peers. Far from being a static, in-your-seat experience, young writers should come prepared for outdoor exploration and observation, candy taste-tests, dance parties, yoga, and more! Come join us and learn just how much fun playing with words can be!

    Exercise your brain during a fun math workshop! Participants will engage in word problems that will strengthen algebraic thinking. They will strengthen their mental math capabilities and further develop the common sense approach to math that is present in successful math students. Math thinking will be challenged and enhanced, and students will further make sense of the math they are doing by writing about it.
