Summer Is Just Around the Corner
Have you noticed that the days are getting longer? Summer is just a few more tests, book reports, and final exams away.
When I was a student, summer meant a lot of things. Obviously it meant no school for three months. Growing up in St. Louis, summer also meant trips to the pool, thunderstorms, catching lightning bugs, and lots of dinners cooked outside on the grill by my dad.
I had plenty of summer activities to keep me busy, and a big chunk of the time was taken up by summer camps. I went to sports camps, Girl Scout camp, and music camps.
These camps offered the perfect setting to focus on specific skills and improve in a small group environment. I remember there were a lot of drills, a lot of rehearsing, and I had a lot of fun.
Many of our students attend summer camps while attending summer sessions. As educational coaches, we get a glimpse into a day at camp when our students come in with paint stains on their fingernails, art projects peaking out of backpacks, and dusty soccer cleats. Our students are able to refine their athletic and music skills at camp, but they also take the time to refine their learning skills as students.
Summer Camp for Your Brain
Attending TFALC summer sessions is kind of like taking your brain to summer camp. First of all, this is summer, so that means there is very little (if any) homework. Students are able to focus on skills that will make them a better learner once the next school year begins. They strengthen their skills in a variety of areas, and learn strategies to train their brains.
By the time the end of summer rolls around, our students are more ready to tackle the challenges of the coming year.
If you’d like to send your child’s brain to summer camp, we are currently accepting registrations for summer sessions. For more information, please call (858)454-7303 or click here to get started.
