SUMMER QUEST CAMPS
@ ARROW

Children's Business Fair: Video

Arrow Accelerated Academy's camp sessions allow campers to experience one of the coolest parts of Acton learning: Quests! During these two-week sessions, learners will immerse themselves in a hands-on project related to the theme of the camp.
 
During Quest Camps, learners will experience other elements of Acton-style learning: Socratic discussions, self-paced and individualized work, progress tracking, and collaboration - a sample of what learning is like at Arrow Accelerated Academy. Arrow Accelerated Academy's camps are academic in nature, but there is certainly a lot of fun to be had while exploring this topic!
 

Families enrolled n Arrow Accelerated Academy's 2024-2025 school year program will have priority registration for summer camps and a 10% discount on enrollment.

Summer Camp FAQs

What kind of camps have you offered in the past?

Past themes include...Harry Potter, Art, Chocolate, and Outdoor/Survival Skills. We offer a Business Bootcamp every summer in preparation for our annual Children's Business Fair we host each summer.

Can my child participate in Quest Camp if they don't attend Arrow Accelerated Academy? 

Yes, learners from other schools are invited to participate in Quest Camp! Our camps are a great way to "test drive" our model of learning. Please check out information about our school year program!  

Are there certain academic skills my child has to have mastered to participate? 

Camp materials will be adjusted to accommodate a range of ages. However, your child will likely be most comfortable if they have an emerging reading ability, some writing skills, and some experience using a Chromebook/computer. Campers will be expected to work relatively independently (without an adult hovering or "nagging"). Campers will also be collaborating on projects and having discussions with other children, so they should be comfortable working with others in this capacity. 

Who will be leading each camp session?

Arrow Guides will be leading each session, delivering an authentic, Socratically-guided Acton experience during these summer sessions. Read their biographies here.

Will the camp be hosted indoors or outdoors? 

We will be indoors for most of our activities, but we will take breaks outdoors. 

What time is drop-off and pick-up on camp days?

For AM only camps, please drop off between 8:45-8:50am to allow your child to settle in and be ready for camp Launch (that's our daily kick-off discussion) at 9:00am! Camp will end at 12:00. Your child should be picked up no later than 12:05. 

For PM only camps, please drop off between 12:20-12:25pm to allow your child to settle in and be ready for camp to Launch (that's our daily kick-off discussion) at 12:30pm. Camp will end at 3:30pm. Your child should be picked up no later than 3:35pm. (Please kindly keep in mind that our Guides have family, pets, and appointments waiting!)

If your child is enrolled for both AM and PM sessions (full-day), please drop off between 8:45-8:50am to allow your child to settle in and be ready for camp to Launch at 9:00am! Time will be set aside in between camps for lunch and recess. Camp will end at 3:30pm. Your child should be picked up no later than 3:35pm. (Please kindly keep in mind that our Guides have family, pets, and appointments waiting!)

What should we bring to camp each day?

For half-day sessions, please bring a water bottle and snack. If your child is going to be with us for the full day, be sure to pack a lunch. (We will notify you of any items that need to excluded to accommodate camper allergies before camp begins.) Please apply sunscreen before arriving so your child is ready to be outdoors. 

In terms of clothing, nearly all of our camps involve a chance of getting messy! Please wear clothes that are able to get dirty. (It may be wise to pack a change of clothes, just in case!) 

 

What happens on the last day of camp?

Families and friends will be invited to an Exhibition during which campers will demonstrate what they've created during their time at Arrow Accelerated Academy. 

What happens if I change my mind or our summer plans change and we can no longer attend? 

We understand that plans change, but please know our Guides will be purchasing supplies and making plans for specifically for your child(ren) in the months before our camps begin. Therefore, our refund policy is as follows:

  • A 75% refund will be given for cancellations before April 30th, 2024.
