The Kuei Luck Experience

In its 16th season, Kuei Luck Summer Camp provides children an opportunity to advance academically and socially during their summer break. While the day camp’s core goal is preparing youth for the upcoming school year, we also focus on building soft skills that are crucial to youth development and future success. We emphasize the following core values: confidence, community, camaraderie, grit, and respect.

Campers spend their mornings engaged in rigorous lessons, discussions, and activities that align with the Common Core Learning Standards. In the afternoon, they choose from a robust roster of activities, such as sports or crafts sessions like Pottery, or enrichment courses like Robotics and Writings. The morning academic courses keep their minds sharp for the new school year, and pursuits outside of the traditional classroom setting flex their creative muscles and hone in on their passions.


Philosophy

As the world becomes smaller with globalization, competition has become fiercer. Summer break has become a critical time to empower youth to be able to rise up to the competition.

Not only do children need to keep their minds sharp academically, but they also have to further develop P21 skills, such as critical thinking and collaboration. These abilities are often developed outside of the classroom, and crucial for future college prep and career readiness. We believe a traditional camp settingcomplete with group exercises and room to explore creative, team building activitieshelps our youth cultivate the soft skills they need to become independent, confident, and well-rounded individuals.
