Jump Start

Jump Start is a readiness program at Arches Academy. We combine a summer of fun and education to ensure your child is ready to start their next grade in the fall. This program is best suited for students who are eligible for the next grade in their age and social skills, but need an extra nudge in their Math or Language Arts skills. Students spend the summer in one-on-one or small group tutoring with our subject specialists so they can be ready to join their classmates in the fall. 


After evaluation during admission or previous teacher recommendation, Jump Start may be required for some students to join or continue at Arches Academy in the fall. More details and information are coming soon!

For a mixture of Kids Camp and Jump Start please give us a call so that we can schedule your camper to best fit both activities.

Counselor Training Camp

We are introducing a new program this summer! Counselor Training Camp is a great way to get hands-on experience working with younger children. If you have a passion for working with kids this is the perfect fit for you. Our Counselor Training Camp co-exists with our Kid's Camp schedule. This is a great opportunity for those who are too old to attend kids camp (older than 5th grade) but would still like to participate in camp.


The week of Kids Camp, Camp Counselors (that's you!) will arrive at 8:30am on Monday to review specifics for the upcoming week. Camp Counselors will learn the basics of planning and prepping lessons, teaching and executing activities, and learning leadership skills that will guide you in your school academics, extra curricular activities and future job opportunities. You will also meet with the camp director to review your role as well as the Kids Camp theme and schedule for the week. Counselor training is a great way to plan ahead


Before admission into camp as a counselor, you must complete the Counselor Leadership Training Course. Within this course, you will gain an understanding in leadership characteristics, rules and regulations of camp, class management techniques and the basics of CPR/First Aid (not a certification). This leadership course has a one-time registration fee. The date of your training will be determined after you have registered for the camp weeks of your choice.


Our Camp Counselors will be responsible for assisting the Head Camp Director throughout the day. In the mornings, Camp Counselors will either assist with our younger kids camp (Nursery School-Kindergarten) or our older kids camp (1st-5th graders). In the afternoons, Camp Counselors will help with our themed activities and will also get to join us on field trips. 

Register by week or pick your favorite Themes. You can view the themes under our Kid's Camp section above. 

What is an Arches Intern Certificate?  Students who register for Counselor Training Camp will receive an Arches Intern Certificate; perfect to add to your resume for volunteering and/or work experience. The certificate is a confirmation of the hours completed with our Counselor Training Camp and will be presented once the week has been completed. An Arches Intern Certificate is only awarded if the Counselor in training meets the following standards:

                                                                  - Plans and executes lessons and activities

                                                                  - Is professional dressed and groomed each day
