Education Unlimited Camps - Boston

0

For 25 years, Education Unlimited has offered academic and creative arts summer camp programs for middle and high school students. The organization believes that a summer spent in an enriching academic environment that is fun and engaging in nature will not only supplement but enhance a student’s school year learning. Whether it is a week spent improving public speaking skills or studying the cosmos in astrophysics, you can be assured your child will reap the benefits of Education Unlimited's programs. The post-camp surveys confirm this; many students say that they learned more at camp than they learned in the entire school year.

Education Unlimited programs in the Boston area are hosted on the campus of MIT. Visit the website for details.

If you have friends or family in the San Francisco Bay Area, let them know about Education Unlimited's elementary age division, Camp Brainy Bunch! Visit www.campbrainybunch.com.
