Summer@Chandler

Dear Families,
 
Chandler School is delighted to again offer our very popular Summer@Chandler program to the greater Pasadena community!

Our program offers children ages 5-13 an incredible variety of opportunities for learning and fun! Every summer, children have a blast as they grow in confidence and build new skills.

Thanks to my team of dedicated, highly-experienced counselors and instructors, we create an amazing sense of community at Summer@Chandler. Our top priority is that children feel nurtured, engaged and safe in our care.
 
Summer@Chandler offers flexible enrollment options to meet every family’s needs.

Camp is a fun-filled adventure every day, offering half-day, full-day, weekly and extended care enrollment options with loads of age-appropriate activities to thrill every child.

Enrichment Classes are courses where children spend three weeks strengthening academic skills, exploring a topic or activity they're passionate about, or just trying something new!

Many families choose morning Enrichment Classes and afternoon Camp. Children may enroll in any number of Enrichment Classes, as long as they are consecutive. The choices are yours!
 
My staff and I strive to provide the highest-quality summer program around. After months of planning, we’re excited to share this new catalog full of innovative activities, unique classes and cool field trips.

We know your child will love Summer@Chandler. We're excited to see you soon!

Choose Your Summer Adventure!

    SUMMER@CHANDLER CAMP
    This is the place where summer dreams are fulfilled one amazing week at a time! With unique experiences designed for every age group, your child will stay engaged in a child-centered environment where campers can participate in a wide variety of stimulating choices.

 new ways to express their individuality, leadership and creativity.
