Developmental Outcomes

Parents worry about their children’s success within society, so they tend to do lots of things to help them achieve it – especially when it helps their children acquire skills like: socializing, analyzing, problem solving, good self-concept, and health. On the other hand, children need resiliency skills such as basic life skills, independence, self-reliance, and self-esteem. The experience they will gain from camp offers an environment far away from distractions and dependency, helping them create and learn new skills that guarantee their success.

Legacy Academy has prepared a 10-week summer program to help children grow in the most effective way while having fun over the summer. We have separated out each week so you understand the amazing experience your child will have at our camp:

Week 1: Aviation
