2021 Summer Camp Ideas and Community Events

Are you looking for a summer camp that’s the right fit for your student? Check out these summer camp ideas from the school counselors at Groves Academy.

Summer Camps:

High School Academic Program Grades 9-11
The 10-day High School program is for students entering grades 9-11 needing support in Algebra, Writing, or Study Skill. Take 1, 2, or all 3 courses. The application deadline for this course is extended to June 2. In these programs, students gain confidence and find the tools they need to feel prepared for a great start at school in the fall.

Writing and Executive Function Program for Grades 9-10
We are still accepting applications for our Writing/Executive Function Program students entering grades 9-10, however, we do have a short waitlist for this program. We encourage you to apply as we do expect to see some scheduling fluidity and a limited number of spots may become available. We will update our website immediately if/when we close enrollment. The application deadline for this course is extended to June 2.
