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 School of Leaders in Altadena.
Far more than simple child care, our After School Camps provides a safe space for children to PLAY! Through this play campers receive a quality education on healthy social skills, successful conflict resolution, and how to make and keep good friends! Our staff are directly involved with the kids, playing games campers choose, leading group activities, and connecting individually with each camper. This engagement is a tenet of our philosophy on active engagement and modeling positive social behavior.
Depending on the school and camper needs, we offer enrichment classes which are designed to provide fun and educational opportunities that are not generally offered during regular school time. The classes are held one day a week for an hour each during fall, winter and spring sessions. Current enrichment offerings include Lego, art, dance, cooking, and science and chess classes. Class sizes are kept small so instructors can connect and quality is high! These classes are offered for an additional fee ranging from $10 to $18 per class, enrolled and billed by session. For more information, call us at the TSC office: (626) 794- 1156.
Our billing system is as follows. We bill each week, based upon the number of days each child attends. These are our current After School Camp fees:
- 5 days per week: $92
- 4 days per week: $80
- 3 days per week: $65
