For 25 years, Education Unlimited has offered academic and creative arts summer camp programs to rising 4th-12th grade students. Our programs focus on a single-subject and offer a fun and enriching supplement to school year learning. Taught by experienced educators who are subject-matter experts, our programs are available in subjects such as creative writing, public speaking, college admissions prep, STEM, video production and more. In the Bay Area, our camps are hosted on the campuses of UC Berkeley and Stanford. Day, extended day, and overnight options are available. In 2018 our sessions will run from June 10th-August 3rd. For students interested in overnight camps, consider our additional locations at UCLA, CalTech, Tufts, MIT, Yale, and Georgetown.

My daughter (age 9 at the time, between 4th and 5th grade) attended Sally Ride science camp at UC Berkeley and lived in the dorms for 1 week. She did it with her best friend but this was her first time away from home for such a long period, and we weren't sure how it would go. The girls loved their experience and were well looked after by the excellent, attentive staff. They almost never had a free moment (they would call us at 9:20 pm to tell us how busy they were and how much fun! I highly recommend this program - it gave the girls such a sense of accomplishment in themselves to be at college on their own. I think the science instruction was excellent also.

Re: Summer programs for gifted 4th grader
Education Unlimited is based in Berkeley and runs academic and artistic summer programs both at Stanford University and UC Berkeley. Their number is 510.548.6612. Most programs are overnight, but there are day-camps too (usually 8:30am - 7pm, and some programs have shorter day options 9-5ish). For elementary school kids there is a Public Speaking Camp, Computer Camp, and Sally Ride Science Camps. If the student is entering middle school, there is also an Acting Camp, and A+ Summer Middle School which is a critical thinking program where they do reading, writing, and logic/problem solving projects.
