Alexandra Hiscox, Director of Camp Operations
At Laurus, we are constantly adapting to improve our impact on the youth that we cater to in our communities. Our motivation stems from the significance of combining education with unforgettable aspects of the summer camp lifestyle. Our main goal is to ensure that children who attend our camp are learning throughout the summer and improving essential skills in creative and dynamic ways!
What distinguishes Laurus from most camps is our unique Specific Training Program that allows you and your child to choose what skills they want to immerse themselves in and improve on. For 75 minutes each day, your child will be learning in a fun and stimulating environment on the specific subject of their choice. Everyday our STA’s are different and every week follows a different theme so your child may stick to what they love all summer or can feel free to try new things by joining a different STA each week. You can customize your learning experience. Our categories for our Specific Training Areas include: Arts (dance, drama, cooking, art), academics (math, science, english, french, robotics and coding) and sports (soccer, basketball, fitness).
Our goal throughout the summer is to help children discover what they love to do and learn more about what they love. For our youngest campers (our juniors), this means giving them an opportunity to practice the essential skills they will need as they continue to grow! For our older campers (our leadership group), we’ve created a unique program where our younger teens can explore their skills and learn more about what they can do to make their communities a better place. With our #KIDSCAN entrepreneurship program, each of our camp locations takes the initiative to raise funds for local charity of their choice.
Our purpose at Laurus is to implement a healthy lifestyle in everything that we do. The motivation behind our daily smoothies, our zumba and yoga classes is to show our future leaders a lifestyle that is good for you inside and out and is most of all fun!
We hope that our LSC family continues to grow and that our dream of sparking discovery in the hearts and minds of all the campers we interact with every day continues to be our reality.
