ELGIN — International, national and local athletes, actors, actresses, musical performers and artists are headed to Elgin this summer to share their distinguished talents with students.
Throughout June and July, students will be able to learn and develop essential skills from professionals in athletic, performing arts, science and adventure camps at Elgin Academy.
Summer at the Academy, created by and under the direction of Tanya Moore, is a new enrichment program offered at Elgin Academy.
For Elgin Academy and non-Elgin Academy students entering prekindergarten through grade 12, Summer at the Academy provides several exciting, different options and sessions for students.
Summer at the Academy offers four unique programs: Summer Arts Academy, Summer Athletics Academy, Summer Science Academy, and Adventure Camp. For parents and students who are interested in a longer day at one of these camps, Summer Academy participants are able to register for extended day options: sunrise care and sunset care.
Summer Arts Academy features process-oriented classes led by professional actors, actresses, singers and musicians who bring a wealth of talent as well as numerous years of performance experience into a safe environment where students acquire a sense of accomplishment through creative experiences. Adventure Camp, for children entering PK-fifth grade, offers four themed sessions: Creative Discovery, Time Travel Adventure, Global Explorers and Imagination Station. Each camp offers age-appropriate enrichment activities in a differentiating curriculum to provide an engaging blend of activities for all ages and abilities.
