Virtual Summer Camp

Students who enroll in our virtual summer camp are provided with an academic curriculum that will prepare them for the next school year. Virtual campers will be invited to attend a virtual classroom where an instructor will teach students math, reading, vocabulary, and writing. Our virtual summer camp is perfect for those students who wish to continue learning throughout the summer break!

Book Club

We read one book per week during the summer camp. All of the books are chosen during the first week by the teacher with student input and students are responsible for getting their own copies of the books ahead of time (either by purchasing them or by checking them out at the public library). Students are required to read the whole book, answer approximately 20-30 short answer comprehension questions, and define and create sentences for approximately 20-30 vocabulary words from the book. This homework is completed online and then discussed in our Book Club classes.

Writing Club

The work completed in this class varies depending on the grade. For lower grades, the focus is often on simple grammar and personal narratives or creative stories. As the grade increases, so do the expectations, with more complex grammar lessons and emphasis on a combination of expository and persuasive writing.

Math Club

We will be previewing the material they will be seeing in the next grade. We aim to preview approximately 2/3 of next year’s curriculum using the same Common Core curriculum and instruction methods used by the local districts.

**Our official summer camp coincides with the schedule of our local Brea Olinda Unified School District. Students whose districts get out early and who begin our summer camp prior to the official start date will be working in combined grade classes and will be reviewing the math they just learned that year. This will help them to prepare for the preview of next year’s math concepts, which will begin the first official week of our summer camp.

For your convenience, we have a variety of program options based on yours and your child’s schedules and budgets.

For example, you can choose to drop off your child at Optimus in the morning, have them dropped off at school by Optimus, and then picked up after school by Optimus to attend our afterschool program. Or, you can choose to only enroll your child in our afterschool program without school drop off and pickup with Optimus. We offer a variety of programs in the early morning, late morning, and afternoon to accommodate your child’s kindergarten schedule.
