Summer Camp for Grades 6-8

2017 Summer Camp with Weekly Theme (8:30am- 6:30pm, 06/12 – 08/21)

Welcome to Summer Camp at Cherry Academy!

Our summer program, designed especially for grade 6-8 students, offers academics, athletics and fun activities – and the flexibility to build a summer around your student’s interests.

Teachers work with older campers to help them set academic goals for the summer. Our unique approach provides an individually-tailored program for each camper, as well as one-on-one assistance. Campers work independently under close supervision from their teachers. Due to the personalized nature of the program, individual progress is not tied to the speed of others in the class. Summer campers benefit from working closely with our experienced, year-round faculty, who are an important part of the summer academic program.

Study Skills

Older campers are given instruction in a special course on how to study and how to overcome the barriers to study. This vital information can greatly increase any student’s enthusiasm for learning and give them confidence in their ability to learn any subject.

Morning Program

Our dedicated teachers, combined with small classes, and a positive learning environment add up to a great summer experience.


Afternoon Program

Our Afternoon Activity Program is a great way for middle school students to learn some new skills, meet and hang with new and old friends, discover hidden talents and have loads of fun during their summer afternoons.

The Afternoon Program allows students to choose a wide range of recreational options including field trips, games and contests plus activity workshops based on weekly themes. Students will be divided into groups for fun and crazy competitions and choose their own specialty classes based on interest and excitement each week. Specialty class choices will include arts, games, various sports skills, crafts, science, technology and more. Students may also choose to use a portion of the afternoon time for library or study time.
