Summer Camp 2017

Summer Camp 2017

Our Mission  

The 2017 La Academia Summer Day Camp is an interdisciplinary program that provides an academic experience in a nontraditional educational environment.  It is our mission to educate our students with engaging, experiential learning opportunities because we believe in allowing students the opportunity to learn by doing, to seek answers to satiate their curiosity, and to have fun while learning.  It is our goal to prepare students for the upcoming school year by giving students the skills to showcase their critical thinking, their ethicality, and their desire to learn.


            Program Overview and Schedule

La Academia is offering a Summer Camp to its students and students from Lancaster in grades six through 12.  The camp is funded by 21st Century Community Learning Centers and is free of charge to participants’ families. 


The camp runs Monday through Thursday.  Doors open for breakfast at 8:30 am, the program begins at 9:00 am, and lunch is served from 12:30 pm until 1:00 pm.  Please note that the program operates on a two weeks on, one week off schedule as seen below.


Each week, from Monday through Wednesday, students will explore a unique theme and how it relates to our surrounding community via collaborative, experiential learning in the disciplines of STEM, History, Ethics and Philosophy, and other Arts and Humanities.  On Thursdays, students will be taking a local field trip to make the connection between what they learn and how it affects our community.  The weekly themes are listed below:
