Avoid the Summer Slide with a little Academics

Summer break is usually a little over 2 months and studies have shown that students are most likely to experience learning losses during this long vacation. Adding a little academic stimulation throughout the summer can ensure your student does not forget what they worked so hard to learn throughout the school year and even improve on critical skills necessary for their future success. Summer academic programs typically infuse education with games and activities, reducing the student’s stress levels and increasing their joy for learning and possibly their retention for the subjects at hand.

In and around New Jersey, we have many great options for Academic camps where our kids can enjoy learning in a safe and nurturing environment. Here are some of the best Academic options you can meet at our FREE Virtual NJ Camp Fair - this Sunday, February 21, from 10am to 3pm.
