Overview of the Summer at Barstow Program


Academic Camps

Create the perfect balance of academics and fun for your child by selecting a morning academic camp and adding an afternoon art, swimming or sports camps.  Popular academic camps are a great way to review, maintain and enhance skills introduced in the previous school year. 

At Summer at Barstow you can select our six-week morning camp for your child in grades 1-6 or our four-week morning camp for your child in grades 7 & 8.  We offer three levels of academic camps for grades 1-5 and two levels of academic camps for grades 5-8. 

Readiness camp is designed to provide extra help and reinforce crucial skills to prepare your child for the grade they are entering in the fall.  The next level, Skill Sharpener, is a great choice if your child needs to review and maintain skills learned during the previous school year.  Finally, the YOUniversity camp is designed to offer your child a "sneak peak" into the next grade level and provide enrichment. 

The curricular emphasis in each of these camps is to focus on individual skill development and learning strategies in language arts and math.  Each camp maintains a low camper to staff ratio.  The camp will have a teacher as well as a teaching assistant allowing campers to advance at their own pace.  Open communication between the parents and teacher is encouraged.  Progress updates are available during the third and sixth week for grades 1-6 and at the fourth week for grades 7 & 8.

Daytrippers - Field Trip Camps

Daytrippers provide campers the opportunity to leave Barstow's campus for adventures around the Kansas City area.  Daytrippers travel to various locations including amusment parks, museums, sports arenas, theaters, water parks and more.  Our Daytrippers staff provide a safe and exciting environment for campers to build friendships, engage in hands-on activities, and experience Kansas City's top spots for fun.
