One of the long-standing gems of The Roeper School is our summer camp programs. Our founders, George and Annemarie Roeper, understood that summer activities provided students with the opportunity to engage in new interests, spend time with friends, and enrich their learning opportunities. This was a concept George and Annemarie brought with them from Marienau when they emigrated to the United States. Camp was a time to change the pace of the school year and to try new things.
The global pandemic has pushed us to reimagine how to engage children in summer learning and fun opportunities for challenge and engagement. We know the pace of summer must be different ,yet it must also provide our students opportunities to strengthen skills and explore new interests.
As we shift our Summer Programs to an online platform, we offer a series of academic and enrichment classes designed to engage children in interesting activities, to minimize summer slump, and to allow students to extend themselves academically.
Roeper Summer Programs Online offers two, three, four, and six-week programs covering a broad range of subject areas: math, language arts, theatre, art, forensics, and more. Classes are offered for students in preK through grade 11. Class sizes consist of 10-12 students led by qualified professionals and experts in their field. Small class sizes promote an active, engaging environment in which relationships can be fostered between teachers and students and amongst fellow students. Classes meet online 3-5 times per week, depending on the subject and session length and last about 1 hour per meeting.
Students who register for multiple sessions will receive an additional 5% discount on the additional classes.
We look forward to seeing you at camp online.
