Academic About Academic Camps Academic

Create the perfect balance of academics and fun for your child by selecting a morning academic camp and adding an afternoon art, swimming or sports camp. Our popular academic camps are great way to review, maintain and enhance skills introduced in the previous school year. At Summer at Barstow you can select our six-week morning camp for your child in grades 1–6 or our four-week morning camp for your child in grades 7 and 8. We offer three levels of academic camps for grades 1–4 and two levels of academic camps for grades 5–8.

"My daughter is experiencing so much success in reading and math after completing Skill Sharpener at Summer at Barstow. We plan to enroll again this summer!"

Readiness camp is designed to provide extra help and reinforce crucial skills to prepare your child for the grade level they are entering in the fall. The next level, Skill Sharpener, is a great choice if your child needs to review and maintain skills learned during the previous school year. Finally, the YOUniversity camp is designed to offer your child a “sneak peak” into the next grade level and provide enrichment.

2011 Camp Catalog

The curricular emphasis in each of these camps is to focus on individual skill development and learning strategies in language arts and math. Each camp maintains a low camper-to-staff ratio. The camp will have a teacher as well as a teaching assistant allowing campers to advance at their own pace. Open communication between parents and teachers is encouraged. Progress updates will be available during the third and sixth week of camp for grades 1–6 and at the fourth week for grades 7 and 8.
