Parents looking for summer camps that will help their children become more confident in their math and science skills may have luck looking at Sylvan Learning Center’s camps in Columbia or Irmo this July.
“One of the new aspects of the popular Sylvan summer camps is there will be online sessions, which allow for families traveling or on the go to be able to take part in the sessions remotely,” said Amy Gardner, the franchise owner for Sylvan Learning in the Midlands.
“If you are looking for ways to introduce your child to new and fun experiences, our camps and workshops not only engage the mind, but are designed to have a lasting impact outside the classroom,” Gardner said. “We have great options for school breaks, summer camps and special weekends. We offer a small group environment where your child can bring friends or make new ones.”
