Dear Radiance Families,
Recent government news has opened the opportunity for childcare establishments, summer camps, and other educational or recreational institutions to provide care or supervision for students of parents who need childcare services to work. As we look at the needs of our students during this unprecedented time, we are developing our plans to adapt our youth childcare and camp programs to best support our families. We want to help bridge the gap for working families while helping to keep your kids active and engaged.
Our enhanced precautionary and safety measures will include:
"My kids have been going to Radiance Learning for more than two years now and just love the school, the teachers, and the whole environment. They also went for summer camp most of the summer last year and want to go here only this year. We love the school. It’s run by some very passionate people and it clearly shows. They are stem-focused, in a very nurturing environment. The teachers and the founder are always available and are happy to listen to you and your child to make it a great experience for everyone. I was amazed at the amount of fun my kids had at the camp last year – park trips, board games, etc. along with some fun robot races, chess competitions, and engineering creations. And the teachers were so understanding with my daughter who had just finished K last year by offering her a variety of things to do during the day so she’s happy and motivated all day. I remember them having a ton of little kids board games already and then going out and buying more games and craft supplies specifically for younger kids. They are awesome! It’s my kids one and only summer camp location choice this year."
It’s back, and it’s even better! Radiance Learning is happy to announce our 7th year STEM summer camp in partnership with Young Explorers and other local providers in 2 locations! The goal of this camp is to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in fun and interactive ways. There will be a healthy balance between learning and having fun! In this day camp, kids will have an opportunity to try writing their first program or build their dream robot. They can also create memorable art/crafts or write their first story. We will have different activities on each day!
What makes us stand out?
This is an All-in-one camp for curious elementary students who need balanced learning opportunities while having fun.
The goals of this camp are to introduce S.T.E.M. contents in fun ways to K-3 graders and to help jump-start students’ interest in S.T.E.M. Young campers will also explore the world of programming through MIT Scratch programming. They will also design, build and explore Robotics with Lego and Dash robots. We have appropriate levels of challenges suitable for all age groups.
Apart from building and programming, kids will explore scholastic chess and board games, which provide young minds with balanced learning opportunities, while they have fun.
This camp also helps K-3 graders to recap what they learned during the past academic year and acquire new skills to get ready for the coming academic year.
Young campers will have the opportunity to refresh their grade level or above grade level Math, Reading, and English Language Art knowledge. The goal of this camp is to keep elementary students in touch with what they learned and get ready for Fall.
We will help them with gifted test preparation by providing critical thinking and problem-solving activities.
Each week we have different theme-based contents. Here are some sample themes for this year (we will continue to add/update themes):
Transport and Animal Safari
City Development and Aviation
Sports and Health
Communication and Robust Structures
Exploration and Collaboration
Colors and Seasons

This camp is NOT a childcare/daycare program. Kids should potty-trained and ready for interactive learning]
This camp introduces students to EV3 Mindstorms / Spike Prime hardware and software programming.
Campers will learn how to design, program, and animate LEGO® Spike / EV3 robots using fun, kid-friendly, software while developing mechanical, engineering, and problem-solving skills.
They will also explore the exciting world of robotics using a powerful microcomputer brick, digital sensors, and intuitive drag-and-drop programming software modules.
Exploration is an on-going process, and when teamwork is added in the picture, it will help students develop into independent, confident, individuals who believe they have the power to bring concepts and ideas to life.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This camp is offered in person and on Online as well. Online students should have a Spike Prime / EV3 kit. We have limited sets to sell, if you need one.

[ Suitable for K- 4 students to learn the basics of computer programming through creative Art, Story and Visual projects and games ]
The fundamental concepts of programming are introduced using Scratch, a software developed by a team at MIT, and will have students think like programmers. Through this Scratch-based program, students understand the fundamental ideas about computers and programming, and develop some basic problem-solving and project design skills.
Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and online community targeted primarily at children. Users of the site can create online projects using a block-like interface. The service is developed by the MIT Media Lab, has been translated into 70+ languages, and is used in most parts of the world. As of January 2019, community statistics on the language's official website show more than 46 million projects shared.
Learn about problem-solving and project-design skills
Develop Logical reasoning skills and ability to fix logic errors
Developing ideas from initial conception to completed project
Understand fundamental ideas about computers and programming
[ Suitable for Grade 5 - 8 students, who are passionate about learning Python. No prior programming knowledge is required]
Learn Python, one of the most widely used languages in the software industry. Python is an excellent starter language because it’s easy to read and work with. In the Beginners' session, we will focus on fundamental computer science concepts, controls, and data structures. Also, we introduce best practices for coding and debugging in Python.
Concepts taught include statements and variables, expressions, conditionals, Boolean, while loops, randomness, and libraries. We want to assume that the children have no previous coding experience to make a solid foundation. In the intermediate session, students will start learning about Data Structures, algorithms, user defined functions, Recursion, File Read/Write Operations, and GUI.
Students will complete a variety of fun and engaging coding exercises under the instructor's guidance and then explore and practice the concepts at their own pace.
Suitable for Beginners to Advanced Coders
[ Suitable for Middle and High school Students who knows Python Programming and passionate about learning Java and preparing for AP Computer Science]
Phase I of this course introduces students to the basic features of the Java programming language: Java primitive and non-primitive data types, control flow constructs, built-in class libraries, object-oriented programming concepts such as classes, objects, method overloading and encapsulation.
In phase II, we introduce students to intermediate and advanced features of the Java programming language. Students will learn about object-oriented programming concepts such as inheritance, interfaces, abstract classes, abstract methods, and polymorphism; will learn how to write and read Java primitive types to and from files; how to serialize objects, and how to implement graphical user interfaces.
Phase III of this course will prepare students to advance into AP Computer Science. The course emphasis is on procedural abstraction, data abstraction, object-oriented design and programming methodology using the Java programming language, and the use of algorithms and data structures.
