Whether you are searching for a way to get your child “back on track” academically or for a memorable, fun summer, Samson’s got what you’re looking for!

Samson Academy’s “arts and nature” summer program strengthens academic skills while kids have fun. Offered in three two-week sessions, Samson’s 2023 summer program focuses on a different biome and its inhabitants each week. From rainforest monkeys to woodland owls, children absorb information about our planet’s animals and their place in nature through stories and hands-on projects. Offered in two one week sessions, Up, Up & Away, our “arts & imagination camp,” travels to countries around the world to let children experience the many cultures and languages of countries around this great planet of ours. Both camps feature other activities targeting skills like handwriting, reading, composition, and math. And of course there will be daily classes in art, music, and, weather permitting, outdoor activities.

Enrollment in each camp is limited to 8 students, Kinder through Grade 5. Tuition is $720 per two week camp and includes snacks and all supplies. Students should bring their own lunch. Our summer programs are held at our school year premises: 1703 Heights Blvd.
