Summer Adventure Club: Where Learning Meets Fun

There’s no better time to make exciting memories than summer! When a child spends these sunny months being active, facing fun challenges and having new experiences, they’ll be proud to share “what they did on their summer vacation.” 

At Primrose Schools®, fun and learning team up to deliver a summer a child will never forget. During this program, children ages 5–12 get the chance to become engineers, artists and explorers in a safe and fun environment all summer long. 

Children are naturally curious and love to explore, discover and create. To encourage this adventurous spirit, Primrose education experts use innovative insights from current research to implement design thinking and STEM-based learning (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) into every day of Summer Adventure Club. This helps to ensure that children have a summer that’s not only full of learning, but full of fun as well. 

The innovative Balanced Learning® approach found at Primrose schools combines purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers for a well-rounded experience that sets Summer Adventure Club apart from an ordinary summer camp. Adventurers enjoy a wide range of activities such as engineering challenges, scientific experiments and themed activities designed to encourage children to reach their fullest potential. 

Children engage in a variety of experiences during the day, including coding their own robot, creating digital Claymation movies and using recycled materials to engineer boats. 

Each week centers on a different theme, adding variety and excitement to children’s experiences. Check out this list of some Summer Adventure Club themes that combine the power of fun and learning.
