Our 2023 weekly themes have not yet been posted.
Our summer academic enrichment program is implemented through four different courses each day: Arts & Crafts, Language Arts, Science, and Music & Theater Arts. The courses are designed by a team of credentialed teachers addressing a different weekly theme.
The weekly themes for 2022 are: “Once Upon a Story,” “It’s a Bug’s Life,” “America the Beautiful – Road Trip Across America,” “Inventions and Engineering,” and “International Travel.”

We will explore fairy tales, myths, and legends through reading and writing. We may even encounter a dragon or two!
America the Beautiful – Road Trip Across America
National Parks, State Monuments, and Landmarks!
See the USA without leaving the CSUN campus! Wander through our national parks; see our famous monuments and landmarks. Travel from coast-to-coast learning about different regions, states, and (everyone's favorite!) amusement parks.
It’s a Bug’s Life
“Creepy Crawlers,” bug safety, and the life cycle of a bug!
Look at the world through the eyes of an entomologist! Learn what it is like to be a bug: where bugs live, what they do, how they eat. Discover crawlers, fliers, stingers, and biters, and how they affect our earth.
