Hellenic American Academy summer camp

Hellenic American Academy summer camp - Deerfield, IL - Summer 2016
Socrates Day School recognizes the importance of play-based learning in the early years of your child's life. We also know that exposure to a second language has been demonstrated to increase a young child's cognitive abilities across a range of subjects. When fundamental educational concepts are introduced in a fun, stimulating and caring manner, not only will your child's knowledge expand but your child will gain the independence and self-confidence necessary to thrive!

Our Summer Camp Program has been carefully planned to use fun summer activities as a means to introduce and reinforce basic educational concepts in both Greek and English. Your child will be learning but also running. playing outside, singing and making friends. Watch your child blossom as he/she takes a joyful journey with us through a wide variety of bilingual and bi-cultural experiences.


Our Summer Camp is designed for children ages 3-12 years old. The program extends over a 7 week session (June 12 - July 29) but families may elect to participate on a weekly or even daily basis. Families may also choose from regular day (9am - lpm) or extended day (9am - 3pm) options.

Each day's activities are centered around a different theme. Educational activities (such as reading, counting and measuring) are incorporated into the day's theme in both English and Greek.

TI me is also made for daily sports and play. Campers are asked to bring a bathing suit, a beach towel, sunscreen and footwear suitable for games such as soccer each day.

Your child's daily activities are based with the following objectives:

Language & Cognitive Development

Social & Emotional Development
