Summer Camp 2020

     Since 2005, it has been our privilege to provide unique and fun summer learning opportunities for students ages five to sixteen.  What differentiates us from other summer camps is our small group sizes, careful planning, original ideas, and our dedication to the progress of each individual student.  We have a beautiful, comfortably shady, backyard so that we are inside and outside throughout the day.

     Our programs have been designed right here at Renaissance Kids, Inc.  We teach real skills and techniques in fun and imaginative ways, and strongly believe that music and the arts provide positive outlets for individual expression.  Our camps, like our year-round classes, povide opportunities for students to work effectively with their peers.  We strive to inspire students to seek creative solutions to problems and to help them discover their full potential.

 

     The schedule of activities for ages 5 through 16 changes weekly and can be found below.  Our normal camp day runs from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  For parents that work needing an early drop-off or late pick-up, please pre-arrange that with us ($10.00 per hour).  There is an early-bird discount for registering by April 18, 2020, and an additional discount for currently-registered Renaissance Kids students (please refer to the registration form for details).  All campers should bring a lunch, snack, and extra water.  Feel free to call us with any questions.
