Avoid summer brain drain at Mathnasium! Our summer programs give students an extra boost for the school year ahead. For some students, that means a good, solid review of previous material. Others benefit from previewing upcoming concepts. Most students will get some of both.
Each student completes a comprehensive assessment and works with our instructors on material based on their individual skill level. We recommend that students come in two or three times a week for one hour. This summer, Mathnasium is offering three programs (see below).
The NTC Summer Stars program gives students the opportunity to participate in a musical theater production, shape the story, create their own roles, and even choose music. The students will use fairy tales, popular legends and myths as well as current cultural icons to create their very own stories from improvisations, allowing their imaginations to take wing, and giving the students a sense of ownership and accomplishment – all while having great fun acting, singing and dancing.
The camp offers:
-classes with working theater artists
-musical theater techniques
-musical theater skills
-explore physical comedy
-learn to develop characters
Founded in 2006 Mt. Tam Bikes Camp is a 5-day camp for novice to expert mountain bikers, ages 8-14. We offer 11 Sessions from June 10th to August 30th. Located in Mill Valley, California, where the sport was born, our custom-tailored sessions explore the world-renowned trails of Marin County. Experience the outdoors this summer on a mountain bike. Improve you're riding skills, learn bike maintenance, trail etiquette, local history and ecology. We do not just go for a ride we coach mountain biking, from fundamentals to advanced techniques. Come ride new trails each day in a fun, structured, non-competitive environment. Teaching each rider to become a safe, conscientious and self-reliant cyclist is our job. Having every rider find the same joy that we have found, in nature on a bike is our goal. Mountain Biking can be as challenging as it is fun. If you ask us who the best rider is, we will tell you, "the best rider is the one wearing the biggest smile."
