Looking for a creative or active summer camp? One that keeps the kids brains or bodies engaged? Well our VM Picks: Top Vancouver Summer Camps list features some of our favourite camps for kids. We connected with Sandra Heusel, admissions and marketing director of Eaton Arrowsmith about their Summer Cognitive Intensive Program that strengthens kids brains to unlock their learning potential.
Give us a brief description of your camp.
Eaton Arrowsmith’s Summer Cognitive Intensive Program is designed for children and adults who, despite their intelligence, struggle at times to understand what they are reading, take longer to make connections between concepts, find math problem solving challenging, are perplexed by jokes or sarcasm, think in a rigid fashion, and/or feel a few steps behind in understanding social situations. This program is equally appropriate for students who would like to take their school and work careers to the next level by sharpening their reasoning and speed of processing information.
What makes your summer camp unique?
Rather than working around learning difficulties with extra support classes, students are able to get to the root of their academic and social learning difficulties – or excel at learning – and break down learning barriers by strengthening their brain’s capacity for learning.
What are 2 highlights of your camp, something the kids will talk about after camp is over.
How much easier and faster it is to learn at school. The amazing summer community at Eaton Arrowsmith – filled with students who have come from all over the world to reach their learning potential.
What will kids learn at your camp?
Kids will learn that learning weaknesses need not define them – that it is very possible to strengthen your brain’s ability to learn and to remove learning barriers. They will learn about the importance of having a growth mindset, and that success is achieved by making mistakes along the way, and learning from them!

At Eaton Arrowsmith we teach our students a series of exercises to help them strengthen their brains and address the cognitive weaknesses that cause their specific learning difficulties. We operate on the principle of neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to be strengthened over time with targeted training. This sets us apart from other learning intervention programs. www.eatonarrowsmith.com
