ACE Academy Summer Camp: Where Summer Fun Meets Child-Directed Learning

We offer enrollment options to fit every family’s schedule, with weekly, monthly, or FlexPass registration!  As add-on’s Lunch( +2 snack/day) and Before/After care is available through registration.

The safety and well-being of our campers are our top priorities. Our ACE Academy 2024 Summer Camps provides a secure and supportive environment where children can learn and grow. Our dedicated staff undergo rigorous training and background checks to ensure that your child is in good hands.

From structured supervision during activities to first aid-trained personnel on-site, we take every precaution to create a safe and welcoming space for all. Additionally, our positive reinforcement techniques and emphasis on inclusivity foster a sense of belonging and encourage campers to take risks and explore new horizons.

Child-directed learning is at the heart of our philosophy. Instead of following a rigid curriculum, children are encouraged to explore their interests and make their own choices. This approach fosters independence and curiosity, inspiring kids to delve deeper into subjects they are passionate about.

 “The goal is not to instruct, but to empower.”

But what does child-directed learning look like in action at ACE Academy Summer Camp? Glad you asked! Check out our Daily Learning Menu below.

I made my first stop-motion film at ACE Academy Summer Camp! It was amazing to see my ideas come alive on screen.

About the Daily Learning Menu

At ACE Academy, we believe in nurturing creativity and promoting exploration through a wide range of activities. Our camp is designed to cater to the unique interests of each child, sparking their imagination at every turn.


Diverse Activities for Every Interest

The activities at ACE Academy are anything but ordinary. Daily options include sewing, drama, sports, cooking and baking, LEGO, robotics, visual arts, ceramics, and more. Each activity provides a unique opportunity for learning while having fun.


More Than Just Fun

What sets our activities apart is that they go beyond just entertainment. Each one provides valuable opportunities for exploration and skill development. By participating in these diverse experiences, campers have the chance to:

  • Explore new interests: Trying out different activities exposes children to various hobbies and subjects they may not have encountered before, helping them discover new passions.
  • Build confidence: As children engage in creative tasks and overcome challenges, they gain confidence in their abilities and develop a “can-do” attitude.
  • Expand horizons: Our activities are designed to broaden campers’ horizons by introducing them to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking.
  • Create lasting memories: The friendships formed and the experiences shared during our activities often become cherished memories that campers carry with them for years to come.
While each child may have their own favorite activity, one thing is clear – ACE Academy Summer Camp is where fun, learning, and creativity intersect.
A Customizable Experience to Suit Your Needs

At ACE Little Scholar Camp, we understand that every family’s summer schedule is unique. That’s why we offer flexibility in our enrollment options, allowing you to customize the camp experience to fit your needs. Here’s how it works:

Flexible Fees and Add-Ons

Buy any number of days or weeks, or even reserve by month. This means parents can plan around vacations, work commitments, and those lazy summer days when kids just need downtime. And when it comes to meals and snacks, kids always have the option to bring their own from home, but you can also register for lunch and snacks to be provided.

Customized Summer Camp

Whether it’s a burst of camp fun for a single day or a consistent weekly routine, the choice is yours. Tailor the camp experience to match your child’s interests and your family’s needs.

Refunds and Credits

Life happens! If your little one can’t make it to camp for some reason, rest easy knowing you’re covered. The camp offers refunds or credits for unused days, ensuring that you only pay for the time your child spends adventuring.

Here’s how you can take advantage of this flexibility:

  1. Plan Your Perfect Summer: Take out the calendar and plot out your ideal summer schedule.
  2. Mix and Match: Combine different lengths of attendance – a few consecutive weeks with scattered days here and there.
  3. Adapt as You Go: If plans change, adjust your child’s attendance dates accordingly.

By leveraging these options, parents can craft an unforgettable summer experience that fits like a glove – no stress over wasted days or rigid schedules. With ACE Academy Summer Camp’s adaptable approach, every family can create a personalized blueprint for summer fun that lets kids dive into learning without missing a beat.
