CCACC ACADEMY

General Overview

When school gets out and the sun is shining, it’s time for children to experience a whole new type of fun learning! CCACC Academy’s summer camps are filled with hands-on programs and meaningful experiences for every type of child. The learning, exciting memories, and friendships built will last beyond the summer.

CCACC Academy offers an enriching and contemporary 1-week (5 days) or 2-week (10 days) summer camp session, to ages 3 to 13 years, in an age appropriate subject area of their choosing. On June 20-August 26, 2022, our summer camp will be providing 56 courses of nine subject areas.

Register today to ensure that your child doesn’t miss out on all the wonderful times!

What is particularly special about our programming are four things:

  • Our instructors are specialists in their educational fields, not general child care providers. They work hard to help our students achieve learning gains.
  • Students are not limited to one subject throughout their weeks with us; they can venture into a variety of topics and determine what is of most interest to them out of the spectrum of high quality courses.
  • Our content is constantly evolving. We give students access to the latest technology and are always researching what will help them succeed in the 21st century.
  • Through our Camp, we aim to reinforce students’ self-discovery, independence, confidence and resilience.

Our 2022 Summer Camp provides 56 courses of nine subject areas, i.e., Performance, STEM, Art, Multi-Interest, Future Leaders, Chinese, Movement, Early Education, and Academic.
