Sylvan camps are great for kids during the summer. I think when summertime comes around, Sylvan offers a camp that gives kids a good passtime, while still giving them soem educational background. Its not like school because I think there are more fun type of activities and more play time, but they do put an emphasis on continuing learning during the summer and keeping things fresh in the minds of the students. It is a costly camp. but worth it because the kids learn a lot and stay occupied safely. The teachers also give good progress reports on a timely basis so you know what your kids are learning and how they are progressing.
