Citing an increase in the number of parents opting for summer camps offering a balance between fun and learning, Crème de la Crème recently enriched its already diverse summer camp program with the opportunity of specialty camps like soccer, theater, music, basketball, gymnastics and other specialized kids summer camp activities at many of its facilities, according to Jody Martin, Vice President of Education for the popular day camps.
“Parents are well aware of the studies suggesting that children lose up to two months of learning over the summer, and are naturally concerned,” said Martin, a former pre-school teacher with 27 years of experience in the education profession. “Our goal at Crème de la Crème during Summer Camps is to effectively combine having fun and learning, so children go back to school not having lost a step.”
Martin believes that part of the increase in popularity in Crème de la Crème – and why its summer camp program is almost totally booked already – stems from the fact that parents are investing more time and energy than ever before in their child’s education. “Between transporting them to school, making sure all the homework is done, meeting with teachers, buying materials for projects, and making sure their children are tracking correctly for high school and college – the last thing they want is to see that investment of time and money fly out the window over a summer vacation filled with video games.”
Crème de la Crème Summer Camps incorporates a strong learning element with many of its most popular activities – such as the That’s Entertainment Camp, which gives kids the chance to stretch their self-expressive side through music, puppetry, plays and skits. “For example, instead of our drama coach focusing only on acting skills – they might also discuss the business side of movie making, such as budgets,” said Martin. “We also give our summer campers access to computer centers featuring the latest in technology, science programs, wildlife studies and everybody’s favorite, a thrilling water park that’s just pure fun.”
According to Martin, Crème de la Crème, an educational company known for its enriched pre schools, childcare and after-school programs, places a premium on creating an inviting setting that keeps young minds stimulated at every turn. The popular “Good Morning America” television show described Crème de la Crème as “It’s Disneyland because of the design… it’s Harvard because of the emphasis on early childhood education.”
“The bottom line is that we want students (ages five to 12) to feel as though they’re entering their very own, very cool world – a villagescape built to scale and filled with stimulating sights and activities from tranquil koi ponds to gazebos displaying kids’ artwork created during our summer camp programs,” she said. “Parents also appreciate the fact that their children don’t have to be bussed anywhere. Everything from our manicured soccer fields, basketball courts… to our very own studio called KREM TV, where kids get to be the anchor of the evening news, all takes place on site.”
Martin added that Crème de la Crème Summer Camps also bring in top experts in their field to teach the kids piano, ballet, tumbling, foreign languages and Taekwondo, just to name a few.
