Every year, kids wait with bated breath for summer to arrive. School is out and fun from sunup to sundown is right around the corner. While summer is fun for kids, it can be a challenging time for working parents. Many parents wonder where to find quality care for their children during the workweek. Other families simply want to provide enrichment for their child during the break from schooling. Parents who register their kids for summer camps kill two birds with one stone. We’ve compiled a top ten list of why parents should consider The Leonardo summer camps as a top destination for kids this summer.
1. The Leonardo Summer Camps Keeps the Cycle of Learning Going
We’ve all heard about brain drain, the summer slump, or the summer slide. Children’s learning slows down when they aren’t stimulated enough. Enrolling your child in a summer camp keeps them in a growth mindset and they’ll adjust to the next school year faster.
2. A Place to Discover New Interests
Summer camps are short format and give kids a chance to deeply explore a subject they have a slight interest in. It is also a great chance for kids to explore new topics they are curious about. We’ve heard from several parents that new hobbies have been formed after attending a camp.
3. Engaging, Competent Staff
Our staff members come from diverse backgrounds and are dedicated to providing quality activities through STEAM subjects, problem- and project-based learning, and developmentally appropriate engagement.
4. The Leonardo Sumer Camps Encourage Hands-On Creativity
Hands-on learning promotes several benefits over traditional classroom learning. It increases retention, increases engagement, and provides campers the ability to receive immediate feedback on their efforts.
5. Bring Camp Home
The Leonardo summer camps get kids making everything from circuits to paintings, and in most cases, they can bring their creations home at the end of the week.
6. Your Child is Taught Using Education Styles Not Found in Schools
More often than not, district schools require education to be taught more traditionally. As an independent non-profit, The Leonardo is free to create educational programming that is multi-disciplinary and engages students on a different level.
7. The Leonardo Summer Camps Themes Are Unique
Each summer, The Leonardo education staff creates new and exciting programs that cover science, art, technology, engineering, and more.
8. Covid-19 Safety Measures
The safety of our campers is our number one priority. We have updated our safety guidelines to protect campers and staff members from Covid-19. Campers will be in small cohorts, and all campers and staff members are required to wear masks at all times. Routine cleaning and hand washing will be enforced each day at our camps.
9. Flexible Scheduling Options / Convenient
The Leonardo summer camps are split into half-day programs. We offer full-day and half-day options, and early and late care is available on an as-needed basis.
