10 Online Summer Programs

Being a parent of four young kids I often find myself wondering what I'm going to do w/ them for the summer when they get out of school.  When thinking about this and looking over many options, I noticed lots of Ed Tech companies have started to offer online summer programs/camps.  This is a fantastic way (and lots of times inexpensive/affordable) for students to spend some time in the summer and help prevent summer learning loss.  With that being said I've decided to create a list of 10 excellent educational programs that students can take online.

*This list is in alphabetical order.
** Not offered online

10 Online Summer Programs

  1. BoomWriter Storytellers Camp - BoomWriter uses their innovative collaborative writing process to help students create their very own Mystery or Realistic fiction book/story.  This is a one week course where students then receive their very own published book.
