Brain Camp puts the “fun” in fundamentals, helping students ages 4 through middle school stay sharp from one school year to the next! Talented faculty — many of them McLean School Teachers — target essential skills in math, reading, writing, and science using a variety of hands-on learning activities. Brain campers will leave this program feeling stimulated, supported, and ready for the Fall!
Our Academic Intensive Programs are based on McLean’s Abilities Model®, which recognizes each child for their strengths, providing support in areas of need, and fostering resilience. SummerEdge teaches the way students learn — conventional learners as well as those with dyslexia, anxiety, and ADHD, or organizational challenges. Programs in math, reading, and writing are a great fit for lower and middle school campers looking to maintain and build momentum in particular subjects. Pre and post evaluations highlight areas of strength and challenge, and small groups ensure that each child is given ample attention and individualized instruction as needed. Campers come away from the program feeling confident and competent, and with documented progress and valuable, relevant recommendations for the coming school year.
Designed for students entering grades 6-12, this program provides extra practice and support to keep students sharp and strong in the classroom come Fall. Choose from a variety of courses – from math to study skills to literature — keeping teen brains active and engaged over the summer.
