The Perfect Summer is Coming Soon!

We are only three months away from summer vacation!  Have you started planning for your kids?

Since  2001, the Creative Education Institute has been hosting an “unschool” camp program for kids with learning differences.  Imagine an environment where kids are not judged by their peers — a welcoming environment for learning, exploration, friendship, and discovery.  It’s called the Academic Fun & Fitness Camp.

Now in it’s 15th season, the Academic Fun & Fitness Camp is hard at work preparing for another rewarding summer — processing applications, developing curriculum, and finalizing activities!
