~ An intelligence is a terrible thing to waste, so don’t leave any of them underdeveloped! ~
There are different kinds of smart, according to Gardner’s theories of Multiple Intelligences. Schools tend to focus more on some than the others. Summer is an optimal time to discover, nurture, and actualize those less attended potentials so that your child will have the opportunity to attain a holistic and well-rounded development of all the intelligences. Gardner theorized 8 different intelligences, which include kinesthetic (body smart), linguistic (language smart), logical (number smart), interpersonal (people smart), intrapersonal (myself smart), musical (music smart), visual/spatial (picture smart), and naturalistic (nature smart).
Our curriculum is designed to actualize your child’s multiple intelligences besides building your child’s repertoires in different specialized areas, which includes Art, Science, Lego-Robotics, Technology, and Writing. Learning activities are framed in ways that point your child to understand how their intelligences contribute to their learning, creating, and problem solving. The process will also help them make sense out of the productions, projects, and activities they participate in. Most importantly, they will be made aware of their own learning progress and the improvements they have made in each of the intelligences, through assessments, rubrics, and debriefings. All these are done in a supportive and fun-filled environment at Legend.
Multiple, non-repeating weekly themes in different specialized areas are offered throughout the summer. There are numerous options available for you to choose. Take a look at the camp schedule, do a little “mix-and-match” to create a schedule that suits your child’s interests!
Camp participants are divided into lower(entering K-G1) and upper(entering G2-G4) elementary groups. For entering G5 and above , please refer to Camp Ingenious held at McClellan campus.
The camp starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. Besides the specialized programs, the camps also include fun Friday activities, which include special field trips and activity stations. For the convenience of families with both parents working, extended care is available to cover the pre-camp(8:00-9:00) and post-camp(3:00-6:00) hours.
