Our Summer Explorers program in La Jolla promises exciting offerings for students age 3 through Grade 6, such as science, robotics, theater, sports, art, Early Childhood Camp (ages 3-4), and more!

Summer Swimmers, a fee-based afternoon session, offers swimming for Grades K-6 at the Coggan Aquatic Center. The center’s swim instructors teach group lessons and campers will be placed in the appropriate swim‐level group and learn skills that will improve their swimming ability.
