Summer can be a great time to fill in some missing gaps or get a jump on the upcoming school year. As any teacher will tell you a summer of doing nothing to exercise the brain does make getting into the swing of things in September more difficult. Fortunately there are many camps in Mississauga that are ideal for helping to keep the brain active. Check out this list of camps with an academic focus!
Converse Centre Summer Camps are designed with more than 20 years of expertise. Their summer programs in Mississauga place children in either a French or Spanish setting, and surrounds them with multi-sensory and thrilling activities.
