Summer is the perfect time to engage with teachers and classmates in studies that often don’t fit into the busy school year. Whether you are a writer or mathematician, scientist or historian, CDS has something for you! We are excited to offer two dedicated academic camps for each grade this summer. These week-long camps are designed to provide a hands-on and focused sneak peak into the coming school year, though specific content covered will be unique to the summer session.

REGISTER HERE. You will be redirected to UltraCamp, our online camp management website. There, you can create an account and login to make reservations based on availability of the current camp sessions and also make camp payments. Should you have any questions, please contact Chris Teare at (415) 861-5432 ext. 315 or christ@cds-sf.org.

We have identified three outside vendors to partner with us during the week of August 20-24, when summer camp will not be available for Lower and Middle School:

  • Camp Edmo will be running a week of camp in the Presidio.
  • Wheel Kids is offering their Adventure Riding Camp for independent riders entering grades 1-8.
  • Our friends at Tree Frog Treks will help our campers build leadership and critical thinking skills through adventuring in nature with peers and instructors.

Math Wizards (Rising 1st-2nd graders)

Want to replace math fear with math fun? Join Math Wizards! Math Wizards will give rising first and second graders a jump start on the math they will encounter in the fall and help spark an interest in math that will last a lifetime. Through exploration, games, and exercises, students will prepare for the next grade level while uncovering the secrets to making necessary connections for counting and grouping numbers.

Reading Blastoff (Rising 1st-2nd graders)

Looking to keep your child engaged in their reading and writing this summer? Worried your child will lose all of those skills they worked so hard on all year long? Have no fear! We have a camp that will make sure they continue to hone their abilities. During camp, students will continue learning new and exciting strategies to strengthen their reading, sharpen their writing, and feel confident as they enter first and second grade!

Mr. Alex invites you to dive into some of the early ideas that will be covered in first and second grade. Students will explore their senses, discuss the scientific method, and develop their own science journals to keep track of their work. Your student will be interested, intrigued, and inspired about science when they enter first and second grade!

Creative Writing (Rising 3rd-4th graders)

This is a writing camp that focuses on reviewing the fundamentals of writing mechanics, grammar, and editing, in addition to some reading comprehension and research projects. Each day, we’ll “visit” a different country to learn about its main cities and sights, its cultural icons like artists and famous citizens, and the cultural experiences that take place there. Daily activities will include more than just writing: we might cook, paint, draw, take field trips in the neighborhood, and more.
