Great Camps for GreatHearts
In order to ensure the continued safety of our students and teachers, we will not be running our Great Hearts Summer Camp or Kinder Academy programs this summer. This is a difficult decision for us because of the impact it has on our families. However, we do not feel that we can run a safe and fun program for our scholars while practicing social distancing. We will offer full refunds to any families who have already registered for a summer program. Those refunds will begin being processed on Monday, May 4th. If you have any questions specifically related to refunds, please reach out to Wendy Hood at Programs@GreatHeartsAZ.org.
In the meantime, free Virtual Athenaeum YouTube videos will still be available to all families. You can access those videos by clicking on this link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8UyUmxS7VL0eo0tuQzYtSr77hEr8nn_1
We continue to prepare for Fall 2020 After-School Athenaeum and look forward to having an exciting year with our scholars. You can register for Athenaeum today by visiting www.GreatHeartsAZ.Configio.com .
Great Hearts is excited to announce our 2020 Summer Programs! Our full-day summer camp is an experience for current and waitlisted students grades K-5th grade that is reminiscent of traditional camps from our childhood with the same quality you have come to expect from Great Hearts. Each week, scholars will experience hands-on, engaging activities in fine arts, reading, writing, crafts, science, math, and history – all designed to inspire creativity and keep skills sharp over the summer. Each Camp also offers weekly guest presenters, camp songs, and games while fostering lasting friendships.
Kinder Academy is designed to acclimate incoming Kindergarten students to the Archway Schools, Great Hearts curriculum, and the academy teachers. Each week scholars will be taken on an adventure to practice the skills needed in Kindergarten.
“This was our first year at Summer Camp. It blew away our expectations! We have nothing but positive feedback”.
“My daughter always looked forward to showing off whatever she made, etc. It was nice to see the kids so excited about what they had created”.
“The things my child learned and the types of projects she worked on were great! She had a lot of fun and wanted to show everyone what she learned.”
“We will be back next year!”
“[Kinder Academy] and Camp are worth it. We plan on doing it for both kids every year. My son is starting kinder in the fall and he was very anxious about it. This gave him a taste of school on a smaller scale and he is now very excited to start kinder. He knows what to expect, knows the school and is starting to know the routines so transition to “real school” will go MUCH smoother. I’m so glad we made the choice to do this. It helped him so much.”
