Engaging and Exciting Spring Curriculum

Your children will take part in an organized math and literacy time each day to help them focus and hone these skills. This Spring Break, our campers will discover the golden age of Hollywood in Tinseltown. Students will investigate the great advancements that occurred in filmmaking during this period.
