Parents don’t forget to register your middle schooler for a summer camp at Bright Lights (!  It’s important for children to stay engaged and learning over the summer, and it can be the perfect time for them to meet new people and try a new hobby. Bright Lights is the perfect way to do both.

Bright Lights has camps to fit into almost any schedule — even around other activities — as most run for three hours either in the morning or afternoon, Monday through Friday.  During camp, your teen is supervised, challenged with hands-on activities and surrounded by peers with similar interests.

Learning a new skill can boost your student’s self-esteem and confidence. It can also lead to the discovery of a new hobby or a desire to learn more on a topic when school resumes.  Having a planned activity during the day can also help students decrease screen time. Bright Lights offers middle school camps that focus on art, cooking, sewing, engineering, science and more. There is also an opportunity to take camps with visiting Japanese students during Bright Lights International Week June 10-14.

Bright Lights provides energized, engaging and fun summer learning opportunities. Their week-long half-day and full-day camps allow students to learn and create, master new skills and build new relationships. Find out more about these opportunities at
