International Ivy

Why choose International Ivy Camp?

The International Ivy Summer Enrichment Program is dedicated to providing fun and intellectually-stimulating experiences to fuel young people's interest and creativity. Summer is a great time to explore. We design our classes to be creative and hands-on. Kids design video games, build robots, tinker with the engineering of gadgets, conduct experiments and make films. We believe kids learn best by doing.

There are over sixty classes to choose from in STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. At International Ivy, we are open to all students and thrive on their joy and laughter.

International Ivy serves children between the ages 5 and 15. All classes are weekly, Monday to Friday, so students can enroll for one week or multiple weeks. Students can also enroll for half-day or full-day.

Come join us for a positive and nurturing summer experience!
