As we head towards the last few days of school, you and your child might be discussing how they should spend their summer. Should they take enrichment classes? Is summer camp an option? Maybe they are burnt out from the school year and need to spend some time at home.
Recent studies have shown the increasing importance of active academic and social stimulation throughout the summer. Researchers have linked an excessive amount of time off during the summer to lower test scores and a gap in a student’s academic knowledge. This phenomenon is typically referred to as the Summer Slide.

How Ivy Kids Prevents the Summer Slide
Ivy Kids understands the importance of summer education as it relates to your child’s academic and social development. With the idea of preventing a Summer Slide in mind, we’ve developed eleven themed Summer camps that are filled with reading, writing, science and math activities, and engaging field trips. Our camps also focus reversing the knowledge deficiency that takes place over the summer by providing school preparedness in math and writing.
Our summer camps cater to all children with various interests. Your kids can discover their inner Paleontologist during Dinosaur Camp, learn how to cook a scrumptious Sunday night family dinner dish at Bon Appetit Camp, and channel their inner Olympian (while getting plenty of physical activity) at our Olympics Camp… just in time for the Rio Olympics. There’s even a Back to The Future Art camp for the next Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerbergs of the world who love anything tech-related.
The learning never stops at Ivy Kids. We understand that development truly begins at a young age, and our preschool and camps are designed to help spur that among our camp-goers.
The stakes are high for your child’s intellectual and physical growth! Do you want to give your child an advantage their development by investing in summer camp and wiping out the Summer Slide? Contact us today for help on which summer camp will be best for your child.
