The first summer camp, held at Karl, centered around artificial intelligence (AI) and Python in the morning, followed by culture and science in the afternoon. The second summer camp was held at Johan elementary and allowed children from grades 1 to 6 to travel the world and visit ancient empires like ancient Egypt and China. Children were also able to make ad enjoy different cuisines from around the globe. The third and final summer camp combined English speaking classes that focuses on topics like music, movies, and TV in the morning, with equestrian classes every afternoon for two weeks.

She came home happy everyday, and told us about the vocabulary, maker, art, music, cooking classes she had each day, not to mention the many new friends she has made in school.
