Register on ActivityHero
Camp Description
Navigating seven subjects in one school day, managing time and materials, creating meaningful and efficient study habits, communicating with adults to enlist their support, identifying your learning style, what works and what doesn't.... these valuable high school hacks are just the tip of the iceberg. In this week-long experience, modeled after Jumanji, campers take on the personalities of different prototypical learners, form teams to acquire collaborative learning and group work skills, and complete missions related to the essential skills educational research agrees are the most helpful high school hacks: collaboration, focused note-taking, learning style self-assessment, time management, and self-advocacy.

During the middle of the day, campers will have an opportunity to play sports, swim, or have fun in our arcade.
