1st - 8th Grade

Morning Enrichment Program: 9:00am - 12:00pm


Summer Adventures in Learning's enrichment classes offer a variety of challenging and fun two-week experiences that span topics in math, science, visual and performing arts, computer programming, specialty athletics, and more. Our dedicated teachers facilitate engaging activities that nurture the interests and passions of participants in a supportive environment that rewards curiosity and a willingness to learn and grow. Most classes are open to all experience levels, and the content and pace of the classes are adapted to meet the needs of the participants. 


Enrichment classes are open to all children entering 1st-8th grade in Fall 2024. Children do not need to be gifted to enroll as all ability levels are welcome. Classes are arranged by grade level groupings.

The Morning Enrichment Program is for families interested in a morning only camp experience. Each two-week session offers three consecutive one-hour periods of enrichment classes from 9:00am to 12:00pm.

Families choose their child's class schedule during the registration process and campers follow that daily schedule for that session.

Enrichment Program campers are dismissed at 12:00pm unless enrolled in the Recreation Program

Afternoon Recreation Program*:  12:00pm - 3:00pm


This is an afternoon add-on program only for campers who also register for the Morning Enrichment Program. The Afternoon Recreation Program must be paired with Morning Enrichment Program.

​The Recreation Program is for families interested in a full day camp experience. Summer Adventures in Learning's Recreation Program ("Rec" for short) provides opportunities for campers to get exercise, make new friends, build leadership and teamwork skills, and have fun just being kids in the summertime. Fully trained camp counselors (1:10 counselor to camper ratio) lead cooperative games, sports oriented games, water games, team building activities and other engaging, non-competitive camp favorites for small, grade level groups. Most activities take place on our large soccer field, playground and black top area, or in the gymnasium. 


Recreation is open to all children entering 1st-8th grade in Fall 2023 who are enrolled in the morning Enrichment program for that session. Campers are split into grade level groups for the duration of the afternoon.


See 2023 Camp Dates, Rates & Policies » 


Each two-week session offers Recreation from 12:00pm to 3:00pm, immediately following the morning Enrichment classes. Families enroll their child in Recreation for the two-week session, so after their last class of the day campers eat lunch and participate in the afternoon schedule of activities. Campers are dismissed at 3:00pm. 


Full-day campers - those enrolled in Enrichment (9:00am-12:00pm) + Recreation (12:00-3:00pm) must bring a lunch from home, or order through our lunch program by Marlas Lunch.
