PROGRAMS & DATES

Our programs will be offered for 5-weeks during the summer. In the past, many students have registered for multiple sessions.

Our flagship session will be held on July 13-24 on the Harvard-Westlake Upper School campus. These programs will run from 9am-6pm. Other weeks will be held on our Middle School campus, and will run from 9am-3pm. (August 3-7 will be back on our US campus due to neighborhood restrictions)

During our 2-week flagship session (July 13-24), students in grades 7-12 will have a residential option (arriving on the 12th, departing the evening of the 24th). Residential students will stay on the UCLA campus and be transported to the Harvard-Westlake campus. We will offer academic enrichment and recreation opportunities for evenings and weekends (some options may include additional charges).

While the senior faculty will take part in teaching in many of the different programs, students will be placed in age/experience appropriate classes.

When you register for the Flagship as a Commuter, you will have the opportunity to express whether you'd be interested in having a drop-off/pick-up at UCLA, as this could be more convenient for families on the Westside or the South Bay. If we have enough interest, we will strongly consider adding this option.

Students in grades 7-12, during our July 13-24 Flagship only, will have the opportunity to take courses outside of their core event
So if you're in the Lincoln-Douglas program you'll have the opportunity to take classes taught by Mr. Hammond on the use of humor or a class by Ms. Alme on Counterplan Theory.

There aren't many camps that allow this sort of cross-curricular experience. There certainly aren't many that give you access to such amazingly successful coaches.
