Recent EBI summer camp review?

Can anyone share their recent experience with EBI’s summer camp? We don’t attend EBI, but my son is bilingual and I’m considering this camp for the summer. He is in kindergarten.

My son attended EBI summer camp last year for 2 weeks (pre-K and not bilingual).  The staff was very helpful and I was impressed by the variety of crafts that he brought home each day.  The hours were good, drop off and pick up are secure and easy and they get plenty of outdoor play in the on-site playground.  My only real complaint was that they would not apply sunscreen in the afternoon.

My son has gone to EBI camp for a couple weeks for the past two summers. He is in a Spanish immersion school and we wanted to keep it up over the summer. It was just OK. It felt like school. They spend a lot of time in the classroom and then run around on the playground. The projects were uninspired. I saw teachers finishing art projects for the kids, which is silly.

Our young kids did it last summer and we heard no complaints, nor saw anything that I felt was inappropriate. They attend EBI so i was worried they would feel 'bored' there but at that age, the seem to love consistency. It's a very "warm" (huggy?) environment where the staff give lots of hugs so I think the kids feel comfortable overall. Good luck!... it's so fun to have a bilingual kid!

Our kids (4 and 6, Pre-K and K ages) have attended summer camps at EBI over the past three summers and we’re eagerly looking forward to participating again this summer. We’ve found the schedules to be very flexible for us as parents. There are plenty of options for coverage during the day and week to help manage work schedules and the weekly cadence makes it easy to plan family travel or even side camps/events to vary up the summer.

Most importantly, our kids really enjoy the camps. The teachers and staff are warm and friendly and really strive to create a fun atmosphere. The days include a variety of educational activities, art projects and games, and even various field trips, all in Spanish and managed in an inclusive way to account for different levels of Spanish.
