Independence is proud to partner with Ivy International and offer Ivy Virtual Camp for kids between the ages of 5 and 15 who want to learn at home this summer!
Like International Ivy's in-person camp, there are over 50 weekly classes in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). All classes are weekly from Monday to Friday, so families can sign up for one week or multiple weeks. There are three class sessions during the day (9 a.m., 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.) with live instructors so students can be guided in mini-lessons, interactions between students and project-based learning. Please note that all classes are capped at six students to ensure the best online learning experience.
As a special discount to Independence students, use the code DEPCE for $70 off per child, which cancels the $50 registration fee and takes another $20 off the total. The code expires Tuesday, June 30, 2020.Each student can use one code per summer.
