Summer Programs

Grades 1-3

Once upon a time at a magical place called York Country Day School, there were many bright and joyous students that loved to read, build, imagine, and play. We bring this spirit of imagination and scientific inquiry to life in the Fairy-tale STEAM camp. In this camp session, students will read classic fairy tales and engage in various related STEAM activities and challenges. Can you imagine an amusement park for the little mermaid and her friends, a tool belt for Snow White, a straw house for a little pig that the big bad wolf will not blow down? We will explore these stories and more, and live happily ever after. 


Schedule: July 24 – July 28 ∎ 8:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M

Join the YCDS FTC teams – the Gearhounds #9242 and the Hackin’ Hounds #21234 – in tackling some creative challenges that will simulate what engineers must consider when designing energy systems. Using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and SPIKE Prime platforms, as well as the process of design thinking, campers will design and build robotic systems that will transport energy units, activate energy systems, and more. Students will practice navigating to a specific location, collecting and moving materials, and identifying the environment with the touch, ultrasonic, and color sensors.

What does the summer program give to a modern teenager

Do you want your child to spend the summer school holidays with maximum benefit? Then you need to plan them right now.

English and American students continue to study even during these hot 3 months. But summer studies at a foreign school are not just classes in the classroom, but a real adventure: everyday discoveries, learning new things and the experience of communicating with peers from different countries.

In a few weeks in an English school or an American college, your student will understand what he really wants to learn, how foreign schools work and what it is like to be independent and work for your future.


Identify abilities and create all the conditions for their development

Summer schools give students the opportunity to try on different roles and gain useful skills that will be useful to them in life. Sports, music, politics, acting, cooking, foreign languages, photography, fashion design – all this can give rise to new interests and eventually develop from a favorite pastime into a future profession. Studying at a summer school opens up all the many roads that lay before a teenager and helps him make a choice.

Being close to those who share your passions

The importance of communication with peers at school age can hardly be overestimated. Being close to those who share your hobbies, have similar dreams and plans for the future, receive support and motivation to move forward, develop further – what could be better for a teenager? In addition, communicating with children from different countries and the ability to find a common language with people belonging to different cultures is a very useful life skill.

Experience of independent living

Summer school gives teenagers the first experience of independent living – you need to be able to solve many small issues on your own (how to get to the place of training, where to wash clothes, how not to spend the monthly budget for the week, etc.). d.). Of course, our managers and school staff will always be there and will come to the rescue, but still these few weeks will be a lesson for your child to grow up and learn to be responsible for themselves.


The process of selecting the right school from dozens of options is not easy. In addition, summer programs attract students from all over the world, but at the same time they have a limit on the number of students – in the best schools, places run out six months before the start of the program. We recommend that you make your choice following the 5 step rule, where each step is important and will help you decide:

  1. The most important step is to talk to your child and discuss their expectations for the summer program.
  2. Select the direction of the summer program: country or school specialization.
  3. Be sure to consult with professionals – get the opinion of an education specialist.
  4. Study the feedback of those who studied in the schools you selected, take them into account and make the final choice.
  5. And when the choice is made – do not waste time and book a place in your school!

Being a modern teenager is very difficult: studying at school, preparing to enter a university, additional music or sports, hobbies and household chores. .. This crazy rhythm makes it impossible to stop and calmly think about how today’s student sees his future. It is this important task that the summer program solves. And besides, she gives your child an invaluable gift – true friends for life, just as enthusiastic and fearlessly following their dreams.
