Every summer, many parents find themselves searching for camps for their children. While there are many options available, finding the program that is the best fit for your family can be a challenge.

“The number of summer day camps families have to choose from can be overwhelming,” says Lauren Briles, Franchise Owner of Primrose School of Midtown Greenville. “The Primrose Summer Adventure Club makes the decision easy by offering such a great mix of activities that are fun for children but also naturally encourage summer learning through play and exploration.”

At Primrose Schools’ Summer Adventure Club, children become engineers, artists, explorers and more as they discover the joys of design thinking, a fun and innovative way to learn. Engineering design challenges, experiments and themed activities await as children unlock new ways of thinking – all while having a blast!

Every week, these activities and experiences center on a new theme that vary from engineering-focused to arts-related to sports-based. Each one includes nurturing leadership, good character, creative thinking, and problem solving in an exciting and natural way. Primrose campers will also take fieldtrips and welcome in-school presenters throughout the summer to reinforce these weekly themes. Primrose provides balanced and nutritious meals and snacks to your children throughout the day, too!
