2020 Camps

Beauvoir Summer Online

Beauvoir Summer is excited to offer Beauvoir Summer Online Camp. This online virtual camp will be a teacher-led, live platform. We have handpicked teachers (see bios on tab below), from Beauvoir and our treasured camp veterans, to lead fun academic and enrichment programs for home campers in rising prekindergarten to rising fourth grade.

Our online camp is organized into a morning and afternoon option. The mornings will have an academic focus and the afternoon will be enrichment activities. You can choose to do a full day, or perhaps you only want to do mornings or just afternoons. The choice is always yours!

The morning academics will consist of three 45 minute classes and will require two week commitments. Each grade level will feature developmentally appropriate work in Math, Language Arts (Phonics/Reading) and either French or Spanish. This is an opportune time to help maintain those skills to curb that summer slide. 

The afternoon enrichments will consist of three 30 minute classes and will require a weekly commitment. Each grade level will feature entertaining and engaging activity choices in Art, Cooking, Performing Arts, Puzzles, Riddles and Games, and STEM.

See individual grade level tabs below for specific schedule and pricing information.

  • How It Works / Participation Requirements

    Each camper will need to have an individual device to access our online environment. That could be a tablet, computer or phone.  We will be using Webex as our main platform with work in Seesaw as well.

    Our goal is for campers to use material they might already have in their home, but we will send an email the week before the camp session start with items to have on hand and ready for their camp.

    Campers do not need to attend all three morning or afternoon classes. You can come for just Math in the morning if you sign up for Morning Academics or Cooking in the afternoon if you sign up for Afternoon Enrichments, but note that the price does not change. 

    Campers will start in the same Webex room and we will use breakout rooms within Webex to place children in the correct group for each of their classes.  The room will always be the same. Our moderator(s) will be accessible any time during the morning and afternoon sessions. If at any time, if a camper gets disconnected, the main room link will be where to go!

    We will also convene in the main room for the 15 minute breaks in between classes. For anyone who wants to participate, we will do some yoga and/or stretch exercises and maybe some other fun activities during the break times. Your camper can always take a full screen break during the 15 minutes as well.
