Summer Fundamentals Camp: Students entering grades K-8.
One wrong turn at Jupiter . . . and misfiring your spaceship’s hyperdrive has left you light years from Earth. Now you are lost and need help to find your way. The intergalactic team at Miriam’s Summer Fundamentals camps will give you a roadmap to jettison your reading, writing, math, and social/emotional skills to infinity and beyond. Remember to make a sharp right at the Milky Way on your way back, or you may be lost in space forever!
