A tutoring program in town is hosting four sessions of educational camps this summer, inviting students to “Unleash your Academic Super Powers!”
Tutor Doctor is holding a new academic summer program to allow students to build skills, catch up and gain confidence this summer while being provided with a “camp” experience, including world class art, theatre, and conversational language.
Breakfast is included for campers in the program, which will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Six Flags in Valencia. Each session runs four days – Monday through Thursday.
For locals who sign up for all four weeks of the program, the camp runs from July 13, 2015 through August 6, 2015. Each session is one week long, and all families are invited to a closing ceremony on Thursday, August 6, 2015.
If signed up before June 13, campers receive the following early bird prices: sign up for two of the four sessions for $520; three weeks for $780; or all four weeks for $1,000. There is also a $100 non-refundable registration fee for all students.

Rainbow Ridge Ranch in Palmdale is offering a summer program for kids ages 10 and up. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays of each week Kathy Zavala will host groups of kids who get to spend the day with the horses on the ranch. Each child will get to catch a horse, lead it, brush it, saddle it and ride.
All levels of ability are welcome, and campers will experience both arena riding and trail riding throughout the summer. Sometimes the kids will be able to ride bareback in the arena, where they can improve balance and gain understanding about the horse’s movements.
Campers should bring their own lunches and, on hot days, Zavala plans to do crafts with the group. There may be time for the kids to decorate their horses with spray paint during camp time also.
Rainbow Ridge year round hosts trail rides, parties and other events. There are pony rides for children age 2-7 and trail riding for ages 7 and up.
For more information or to sign up for camp, call Kathy at (661) 538-9271.
