TSH SUMMER CAMP

at The School House Located in East Northport, NY

 

Our TSH camps are different.

First, they are led by teaching professionals who want to enrich your child’s summer.  These are fully-trained Educators. Second, TSH Camps explore the latest research in child development – what they should be learning and how. And finally, we never, ever forget the FUN.  Each child should be totally bummed to leave camp each and every day.
