When school’s out and summer is here, what are you going to do with your free time? Many boarding schools offer summer camp experiences ranging from a summer school style to sports camps. But with all the choices out there, you might be wondering what summer camp is right for you. Here are a few options to consider:
Know that your math class will be a challenge? Want to prepare for the SAT? Looking to master a second language? Genuinely love science and want to spend a few weeks working on engineering projects and rockets? Check out programs that offer academic specialties. An academic summer camp, sometimes referred to as summer school, can be a great way to get a leg up on the coming school year.
A great way to push yourself athletically in the summer is to participate in a sports camp. With offerings ranging from short 3-day sessions, like Cheshire Academy’s football camp, to 4-week programs like a soccer camp, it’s easy to find something that will fit your schedule and get you ready for the coming season.
There are plenty of arts camp experiences, too. From visual arts and photography to drama and music, you can find something that fits your needs. Some summer camps can be intensive theater experiences, allowing you to produce and perform a play over the summer while making important industry connections.
Some camps focus on one particular topic, like an ESL/ELL bootcamp for students looking to master a second language, or a space camp where you design and build rockets and study outer space.
General Summer Camps
Not sure what you want out of your summer experience? Then a general summer camp that combines social activities, arts and crafts, sports, and outdoor activities might be exactly what you’re looking for in a summer program.
