Tom Sawyer Camps After School Camp
Tom Sawyer Camps offers four quality after school programs for elementary school and junior high students of Pasadena Polytechnic School, The Waverly School in Pasadena, Odyssey Charter School and Aveson Charter School in Altadena.
Far more than simple child care, our After School Camps provide both quality educational experiences and FUN for the campers. The Tom Sawyer philosophy is based upon the direct involvement of the staff in the daily activities. Our caring, well trained counselors involve themselves with the campers both by leading games and activities and by playing along in games of the campers' choice. Through this interaction our campers develop healthy social skills, learn how to successfully resolve conflicts and how to make and keep good friends!
We also offer a wide range of enrichment classes which are designed to provide fun and educational opportunities that are not usually offered during school. The classes are held one day a week for an hour each during fall, winter and spring sessions. Current enrichment classes include horseback riding, art, dance, and cooking, magic classes and chess club. Class sizes are kept small so the quality is always high! These classes are offered at an additional fee ranging from $10 to $18 an hour. For more information and fees, call us at the TSC office: (626) 794- 1156.
