  Summer
 2021  
  Alternate Academic Camp for G1 to G8 and Chinese Language Learning Camp for K to G5 are also available.
 

   
 
   
   

Our Mission

 

Kwan Academy is dedicated to providing a fun and enriching summer camp that involves academic, music, computing coding and personal growth as well as a place to make friends and memories that will last a lifetime. We firmly believe in balanced education and fun-based learning. We provide both music and STEM programs to ensure that your child enjoys a full summer of balanced fun and learning.

Program

There are a total of eight weekly sessions. Independent weekly contents are designed for flexible enrollment during the summer.

Our skilled camp leaders (staff members) are trained to adapt an innovative curriculum catered to students who will enter grades K-10 in the Fall.

Our weekly programs are all designed by professionals in their respective fields to ensure the highest quality because we want the best for our kids with the hope that your child will want to come back year after year.

This is why we maintain a low teacher to children ratio: to ensure excellent supervision, guidance, and a more intimate student-teacher relationship.
