Summer Enrichment

The Foundation operates a fun and enriching series of half-day camps each June – August, offering more than 40 programs designed specifically to inspire and teach students ages 5 to 15 in the areas of science, music, technology and the arts. Join us in our custom CEF camps taught by your favorite CEF staff or other local experts at coding, videogame design, movie making, cooking, and more. We also have offsite camps at LEGOLAND California and a master professional surfer teaching our NEW Surf Camp in Oceanside. Other new camps to explore this year feature NASA space science and the wonders of animals with Mad Science!

Young Americans

This high-energy comprehensive performance summer camp covers everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more. Learning a show in 5 days helps students learn to work together, to respect each other’s strengths, and to discover their own potential. In addition, the students will take classes in the areas of voice, dance, songwriting, and performance (acting and improv).  After five days of intensive performance instruction, it’s show time! The Young Americans cast of 40 perform the first act as a gift to the campers and community. Then, the students perform the second act and showcase all the material they learned throughout the week. This show is jam packed with choral, jazz, contemporary, musical theater, rock n’ roll and more. Your students will be the ones in front singing, dancing, and performing the variety show and solos they’ve learned in just four days. Camp is 9 AM to 5 PM daily Tuesday, July 24 – Saturday, July 28 with two final show times on Saturday. Learn more by clicking on the Young Americans Registration tab.
