If it’s with computers and video games that you get your kicks, look no further than Planet Bravo’s Techno-Tainment Camp. This award winning summer camp boasts some of the most innovative pedagogy when it comes to technology. Teaching kids how to code, design video games, use computer software, and even make movies, an all-inclusive ride awaits campers in this technological hotspot. Using groundbreaking programs like Scratch and FusionLite, which were specifically created to teach kids how to maneuver through the complexities of coding, and employing games like Minecraft to reify their lessons, the line between fun and learning is truly blurred in this one-of-a-kind camp.
If its name keeps it general, that is because Camp Funtime has just about anything you can think of when it comes to things to do. Fun is what matters here! Making every day of the week unique, their rotating schedule ensures no activity ever gets old. It might be archery and arts and crafts one day, dance and karate another day, or music and yoga on yet another day. Including many more activities in their curriculum, such as science, nature, and sports, this camp truly lives up to its name by offering a stimulating variety of things to do and learn.
Led by some of LA’s best dancers, many of whom regularly appear on television or on stage; the Degas Dance Studio guarantees intense and immersive dance lessons. Not limited to one style, their offerings include ballet, jazz, hip-hop, modern, and break dancing among others. But while its name suggests a concentration on dance, its summer camps include a much wider range of classes. From improve, to acting, to cold reading/scene study, to filmmaking, they even offer classes in cultural studies, pantomime, and nutrition! This truly diverse list of activities allows kids of ages 7-18 to fill their weeks with only their favorite things.
