2020 Camps

Language (Rising K - 3rd) /Math (Rising 1st - 3rd)

Summer Language Programs for Rising K to 3rd graders
This summer your child can begin learning a new language or continue to strengthen their foreign language skills. We will have two sessions of Spanish and one of French. Children will learn about different and interesting topics on countries that speak the language they are studying. Our instructors are native speakers, most of which are part of the Beauvoir Language Programs during the school year. 

Math Camp for Rising 1st to 3rd graders 
This two week math program is designed to help your summer student not only retain what they have learned when it comes to math but progress with their mathematical thinking, understanding and problem-solving with a carefully crafted curriculum. This focused and structured camp will help combat the “summer slip” that some students experience when school is out of session. This summer session is designed for rising 1st, rising 2nd, and rising 3rd graders. Our instructors are current Beauvoir teachers. 

More information on dates, pricing and instructors, see the individual session tabs below.
For these half day programs, you can add Make Your Own Options for the other half of the day for Rising 1st-3rd grade. For the rising K, you can do the half day Blue Jay Journey program.
