Academic Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Academic Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Academic summer camps, often called academic enrichment or pre-college summer camps, give elementary, middle, and high school students the skills, motivation, and confidence to improve their talents and grades. A great option for boys, girls, and teens trying to get ahead or catch up, academic summer camps provide high-quality instruction from qualified teachers and educators. Academic summer camps are available for almost any subject area including business, SAT prep, debate, environmental science, computers, international languages, math, public speaking, robotics, science, history, and more. Campers are typically housed on school or college campuses, or at traditional summer camps. Though they may only run in June, July, and August, the positive results of academic summer camps can be seen all year round!

Ages, Tuition, and Session Length at Academic Summer Camps

Overnight academic summer camps are typically developed for students between the ages of 7 and 18. Campers are typically grouped by age and grade level to maximize learning and social opportunities.

Sleep-away academic camps typically run 1 week, 2 week, 4 week, and 7 week sessions. Costs vary considerably by program, location, instructors, and facilities and can range anywhere from $350 to $1,350 per week.

Choosing the Best Academic Summer Camp

There are many important questions that families should consider when choosing an academic summer camp. Where are students housed? Is the camp more geared to helping students get ahead or catch up? What type of certification do teachers and instructors hold? Is the camp purely academic, or are other activities available to campers? Does the program offer credit that can be attributed to high school or college?

To help answer these questions and match your family with the appropriate program, call a Choice Camps Academic Summer Camp Placement Expert at 617-264-0939. We'll help you find the perfect academic or pre-college camp for your boy, girl, or teen!
