Hey, I know somebody who went to a great summer camp from Mindsahead Academy. It was Mindsbee summer camp where they did personality development classes and robotics. All the children came out as little professors more confident. They also offered language classes knows as Language Minds, 1 on 1 tutoring known as TutorMinds, and Abacus and Math enrichment knows as Brain o Brain.
