Cicero Summer Programs

Great Camps for Great Hearts.

Great Hearts Summer Programs ~ Archway Cicero

Registration for Summer 2022 begins January 2022

Our full-day summer camp is an experience for current and waitlisted students grades 1st-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 Readiness 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.
