Session 2: 3 weeks from 6/27-7/15

Math Enrichment

Through a combination of hands-on activities, exercises, problem-solving, and games, campers will deepen their knowledge of math concepts, learn to master computational procedures and increase their word problem skills. 

  • Fact Fluency: No matter your skill level, students will  improve their  addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division fact fluency through daily hands-on and fun practice
  • Math Logic: Students hone their problem-solving skills by working out fascinating problems and puzzles, tapping every child’s intuitive ideas of logic and natural enjoyment of games. Simple-looking games and puzzles quickly lead to deeper insights, which will connect with significant formal mathematical ideas.

Daily Homework (Optional)
To make steady progress, finishing more than two sessions is highly recommended.

English Reading & Writing

At YCIS, we nurture students to become flexible and resilient readers and communicators who read and write for pleasure as well as for academic purposes. Campers don’t only practice language arts essentials (grammar, sentence structure, word choice, proper form and mechanics, literary analysis) but also enjoy reading a variety of literature while perfecting their writing skills. Students receive direct instruction, guided and independent practice incorporating their personal passion and interest.

  • In reading lessons, campers strengthen literal comprehension, interpretive and analytic reading in both informational and narrative texts.  
  • In writing workshops, campers construct and develop well-organized and crafted pieces across multiple genres, as well as clearly articulate and develop ideas creatively.

Daily Homework (Optional)
To make steady progress, finishing more than two sessions is highly recommended.

    An organic, nutritious, and environmentally sustainable hot lunch features a hot/cold entree of fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and a healthy snack.

    Fresh, delicious, and authentic Chinese food. A new lunch program from NextDish is exclusively catered for YCIS students and campers.
