Kids Summer Camp in Cupertino

Camp Legend, a kids summer camp in Cupertino, is designed to actualize your child’s multiple intelligences while building your child’s repertoires in different specialized areas that include Art, Science, Lego-Robotics, Technology, and Writing. Our summer learning activities are framed in ways that point your child to understand how their intelligences contribute to their learning, creating, and problem-solving. The process will also help them make sense out of the productions, projects, and activities they participate in. Most importantly, they will be made aware of their own learning progress and the improvements they have made in each of the intelligences, through assessments, rubrics, and debriefings. All these are done in a supportive and fun-filled summer environment at Camp Legend in Cupertino.
