This summer is certainly an odd one, in terms of summer camp, summer school, and summer jobs. No matter what age your child is, you’ve probably been affected by this strange summer. My kids’ camps were all canceled and I’ve been looking for alternatives for them. If you have a child who is aged 12-19, you are in luck! Access to Language Studies has a Virtual Summer Camp. They have been running summer camps for 20 years, but have totally reinvented themselves to provide students with the opportunity to challenge themselves, learn & enhance their skills, develop cultural awareness, and make long lasting friendships this summer!
Access America Virtual Summer Camp For 2020:
- This is for students, ages 12-19, who are American and international students.
They are able to pursue educational topics not typically available at summer schools and summer camps.
These include: Creative Writing, Film Production, Music History, Environmental Science, College Preparation, and Personal Finance.
Students will use Microsoft Education and Nearpod, and engage with experienced instructors, while also collaborating with their peers.
Access America courses are taught by talented, enthusiastic, and experienced instructors, and a maximum capacity of 10 students will ensure a successful and supportive educational environment.
There is a combination of live classes on a secure video platform with cultural workshops, independent/group study, and virtual field trips. 3 hours/day, Monday to Friday, 9am-12pm or 7-10pm EST. There are two-week sessions, each focusing on a thematic topic from a variety of perspectives, which encourage further analysis, discussion, and presentation.
The classes have a mixture of U.S. and International students, who will be at least a high-intermediate English level – able to engage and express ideas and opinions smoothly. And students will make new friends while enhancing their communication skills and cultural awareness to succeed in today’s global community – all from the comfort and safety of home!
Access America Virtual Summer Camp will have Virtual Office Hours offering real time feedback and support, or students can add on 1:1 Tutoring to focus on a particular academic need; writing a college essay, presentations, public speaking, etc.
Access to Language Studies knows that communities and parents are struggling to find ways to keep kids engaged this summer. Not only is this program educational, but it’s also fun. It provides a unique opportunity to help students learn about topics that aren’t always taught in school. In fact, I have a coupon code!
