Fresh air and a little bit of structure: Sometimes it’s what young people need the most but get so little of in middle school and high school. This summer, put away the video games and give your teenage son or daughter a summer camp experience that will help them achieve pride and confidence while getting ahead in their education.
Offered to kids and teens in grades 7-12, Wentworth Summer Camp youth programs combine outdoor activities, academic education and life-long skill development to help teenage students:
- Prepare for transitioning to high school or college
- Get back on track for graduation with summer school classes
- Develop values such as self-discipline, integrity, teamwork and accountability
- Meet other students from around the world and build friendships that will last a lifetime
Wentworth Military Academy and College is fully accredited and our courses are transferable to any middle school or high school in the United States. Summer camp programs are offered at our main campus in Lexington, Missouri.
More Than a Military Camp: About the Wentworth Summer School Experience
Our summer camp programs are about giving kids and teens opportunities to succeed both inside and outside the classroom.
Grounded in the honor code of one of the top military academies in the nation, the Wentworth summer camp experience combines lessons in leadership, education and discipline: Our summer camp programs include military structure, classes Monday-Friday from 0800 to 1200, and two hours of mandatory study time every night. They also include paint ball and laser tag tournaments, JROTC activities such as rappelling and orienteering, and many more opportunities for teens to learn to work together and have fun!
Distinguished by academic excellence, Wentworth summer school provides a supportive learning environment in which students can get back on track in their education with recovery courses, or gain an academic advantage going into the next school year. Small classes and close faculty interaction ensure personal attention kids and teens need to succeed. Training and Counseling (TAC) Officers and summer camp counselors are also available to help with course work and guide students on a path of honor and integrity.
