Summer day camps at the St. Charles Children’s Learning Center put fun into your child’s summertime and allow parents to continue to work on their own educational, career, and family-related goals.

Each program engages, educates, and entertains through hands-on activities provided in a safe, caring environment where students feel free to explore.

Weekly themes chase away school-year doldrums by helping students test the boundaries of their knowledge, discover fascinating facts and new areas of interest while realizing their learning potential and making life-long friends.
