We Uncover What Makes North County San Diego a Summer Camper’s Dream

Summer camps merge exploration and self-expression within a hands-on learning environment. They also promote independence, a sense of belonging, and friendship, which boosts self-esteem and development. And with a good amount of summer camps set in the beautiful outdoors, camps not only cultivate new skills but also provide us with the opportunity to immerse ourselves in nature and breathe in the fresh air. With prime locations near the ocean, parks, and campgrounds, North County San Diego boasts a wide variety of summer camps for children and teens of all ages and interests for the artist, athlete, comedian, or animal lover in the family. Whether a child or teen is looking for a traditional camp experience, a weekend science and discovery camp, a creative experience with an art camp or a sports camp, summer camps in North County cater to them all. Our summer camp guide provides an inside scoop on the camp options available this upcoming season. We invite you to read along and discover the adventure awaiting you.


City of San Marcos

city-of-san-marcosThe City of San Marcos is offering a fun-filled summer with over 50 specialized half-day camps for local children. “It is the City of San Marcos’ goal to bring recreation and education together in a fun way through these specialty camps,” explained Recreation Program Coordinator Holly Payad. “We strive to expose children to a variety of sports, activities, and hobbies in an energetic atmosphere where they can also socialize and make new friends.” Camps include science, technology, sports, art, and music programs. Cooking camps like Top Chef or Kids in the Kitchen and engineering camps like Gears 2 Robots are always popular and fill up quickly.

“Each camp is instructed by a different company and staff, so there is a lot to choose from,” sharffed Holly. By working with a variety of top-notch local companies, the City is able to ensure that each camp’s specialized activities are led by well-qualified instructors. All instructors have completed fingerprinting and background checks and all companies carry insurance. Camps are offered for kids ages five to 17 and typically run for one week from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or from 1 to 4 p.m. Indoor specialty camps are held in the San Marcos Community Center, and outdoor specialty camps are held at various City parks and fields.

Registration opens on April 13. Participants who enroll by May 30 will receive a $20 discount on registration. Learn more by calling 760-744-9000 or see what exciting programs are available this summer at www.san-marcos.net/register.


Therapeutic Literacy Center

TLCTherapeutic Literacy Center (TLC) is pleased to help students reach their potential and thrive this summer. With six to 10-week individualized summer sessions, TLC offers students the opportunity to prepare for the upcoming school year and improve on lifelong skills necessary to achieve both in and out of the classroom. As TLC Owner Maria Bagby expressed, “Summer is a great opportunity for children to adjust the ways in which they learn so that they enter the school year as more competent and confident students.”

At TLC highly trained clinicians and educational therapists identify the causes of students’ weaknesses and address them immediately so that lifetime accommodations become unnecessary. Summer sessions are available for students between the ages of five and 18. Children are individually assessed and receive customized cognitive training in a one-on-one setting. This allows the staff to cater to each student’s specific learning challenge. Students have access to the latest technological advances including sound therapies, deficit-specific auditory processing stimulation and training, audio-vocal training, attention and focus training, Interactive Metronome, and other research-based auditory, memory, and processing programs. Additionally, to build students’ self-esteem and create a more collaborative learning environment, TLC will also include social experiences between tutoring sessions. “It’s very beneficial for the students to connect with others going through the same experience,” shared Maria.
