Summer is here! The kids are happy for summer, but they'll get bored super quickly if they just sit at home and watch TV. If you want the kids to work out their bodies or minds, consider enrolling them in a summer camp! They'll get out of your hair a little bit, and they'll get to develop new skills and connections. Check out these 5 awesome summer camp opportunities!  

1. Bytes & Bots

Bytes & Bots Labs offer integrated educational robotics, coding, game and app development, and How-to-Make-Almost-Anything (H2MA2) fab after-school classes and summer camps.  For the family's future scientist, this is a must-try! Students starting at age 6 can enroll in summer camps at Bytes & Bots, and I wish I was enrolled here when I was a kid! Plus, they even do 3D printing... how cool is that?

Last weekend, our Little Artists (ages 3.5-5) had their first solo #spring #ArtShow and #Promotion #Ceremony at @the_artist_lab! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ . Families and friends were invited to come appreciate their beautiful art, listen to some student speakers, celebrate their awards ceremony, as well as support their art by buying their works that were being auctioned for a good cause to donate to other underserved youth in the communities at @orangewoodfoundation and @pennylanecenters. We strongly believe in bridging our youths in diverse communities and helping one another through the arts and efforts of the hearts. โ™ฅ๏ธ . We are so proud of how brave and generous hearted our Littlest Artists are. So many donated their artworks to help others. All the pieces that have not been auctioned off yet will continue to be sold at our main Student Spring Show and largest Presale event coming up, Sunday May 19th, 2-5pm. Stay tuned! . Thank you to our Little Artists, and congratulations to the ones who got #promoted to our more advanced #Foundation, #Creative Expressions, or #Storytelling Program for ages 5.5-7.5! We are so proud of you all! We love our Little Artists! ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŽจ - xo, The Artist Lab Faculty & Teaching Team

3. AAA Sports Club

The goal of AAA Sports Club is to help athletes improve their skills in their particular sport of interest while providing an entertaining and safe atmosphere. All of their coaches are former players who competed at a high-level, and more importantly, know how to teach! If your kid wants to be the next Kobe, maybe AAA Sports Club is right for them. They've got an array of different sports programs available, and it's great for the kids to get exercise every day!

4. Fashion Camp

Fashion Camp is a learning studio focused on fashion design โ€“ including sketching, draping, creating and sewing! They offer camps, classes and workshops for kids. If one of your children is fashion minded, this might just be the awesome summer camp that they've always wanted! Plus, they even cater to boys! The boys often make cool stuff such as backpacks, jackets, character shaped pillows, or cotton stuffed basketballs! This might just be the most unique summer camp of the bunch!

5. Fundamental Chess Academy

Fundamental Chess Academy's goal is to accelerate your children's chess improvement and immerse them in weeklong chess camps. Each day consists of lesson instruction, puzzle-solving, and practice or tournament games. If your child isn't a sports superstar or a fashionista, chess camp may be a great option! They'll get to flex their brain during the summer, and they'll have a ton of fun doing it!
