Kids Language Art offers half and full day camps for ages 3-12 to provide an opportunity for increased language exposure while engaged in small group activities. 

Children's learning depends on the level of their engagement. 

Children are more engaged when the lessons are tied to their interests.

 All Kids LA, curriculums are created based on children's interest. We ask every registered child for a list of things they are particularly interested in and we will make sure to incorporate that into our weekly summer themes. Children form an understanding of themselves and their place in the world through their interactions with others and the materials while acquiring a foreign language. 

WE BELIEVE IN THE KIND OF PLAY THAT WORKS THE BRAIN.

This is the perfect time in your child’s life to get the academic wheels spinning. Through a progressive project-based program featuring weekly themes, we’ll fill their heads with new concepts, cultures and time periods in the context of teamwork, development, and of course, fun. We’ll focus on three core components:

STEM: One of the best ways to learn is to “do.” Hands-on experiments will help campers explore scientific concepts through trial and error, and ultimately teach them to apply that knowledge when confronted with new challenges.

REGGIO EXPLORERS & ARTS: Unlock the right brain for untapped treasures. From visual arts, to poetry, to drama, we’ll enable campers to express themselves and learn how to communicate in different contexts.

SOCIAL SKILLS BUILDING: Collaboration, creative problem solving, and leadership will be explored as campers engage in team-oriented low ropes style challenges.There is a strong focus on social collaboration, working in small groups, where each child is an equal participant, having their thoughts and questions valued. The adult is not the giver of knowledge. Children search out the knowledge through their own investigations.There is a strong focus on social collaboration, working in small groups, where each child is an equal participant, having their thoughts and questions valued.
