Weekly Themes

Ages 5- to 12-years old

Summer day camps at the St. Charles Children’s Learning Center put fun into your child’s summertime and allow parents to continue to work on their own educational, career, and family-related goals.

Each program engages, educates, and entertains through hands-on activities provided in a safe, caring environment where students feel free to explore.

Weekly themes chase away school-year doldrums by helping students test the boundaries of their knowledge, discover fascinating facts and new areas of interest while realizing their learning potential and making life-long friends.
