Brain Camp

Stay Sharp This Summer (Age 4 - Grade 6)

SummerEdge Brain Camp helps students age 4 through Grade 6 maintain the skills and strategies they learned throughout the school year and prepare them for the coming Fall.  In order to combat Summer learning loss, Brain Camp specifically targets essential learning skills in math, reading, writing, and science. 

Our talented faculty, many of whom are teachers at McLean, make academic work fun over the summer with a variety of hands-on learning activities.  Campers strengths are acknowledged and challenges always supported.
