Summer Success Camps

Key Strategy of Winners

Devoting a significant portion of summer to learning and practicing new skill is one of the well known strategy of winners within the league. Don't miss out!

Effective and Efficient

A motivated student can achieve a lot during a fraction of their summer downtime. Summer camps are intensive and distraction free. One learns a lot more effectively.

Free From School Work

Academic competitions require serious study. It's hard to allocate sufficient time to properly adress the needs of such rigorous learning during the school year.

Time to Accelerate

Need to catch up? Summer is the perfect time to accelerate your learning in order to remain competitive. Most successful students start at early middle school.

Summer camps are great to start a new study.

Why Are Summer Camps Great?

Most Summer camp courses run on an intensive daily schedule.

What Does a Summer Camp Course Daily Schedule Look Like?

Full Day Courses

The daily schedule of camp courses' is as follows. Consult with each schedule attached to the subject matter in the following section regarding the content of each class period. There is break time in between periods.

Event Begin End
Period 1 8:00am 9:30am
Break 9:30am 9:45am
Period 2 9:45am 11:15am
Lunch 11:15am 11:45am
Period 3 11:45am 1:15pm
Break 1:15pm 1:30pm
Period 4 1:30pm 3:00pm

 

Math Camps

Math courses include lectures in four subjects every day: Algebra, Geometry. Combinatorics, and Number Theory. In each class there is a brief theory lecture led by a problem solving discussion. A typical ordering, subject to change, will look like the following.

Subject Begin End
Algebra 8:00am 9:30am
Number Theory 9:45am 11:15am
Lunch 11:15am 11:45pm
Combinatorics 11:45pm 1:15pm
Geometry 1:30pm 3:00pm

 

Computer Science Camps

Computer Science (USACO) camps dedicate half of the periods to lectures and the other half to hands on implementation and coding practice. During the Implementation and Practice time students may interact freely with their instructors regarding their questions or codes related to the topic.

Activity Begin End
Lecture & Discussion 8:00am 9:30am
Implementation & Practice 9:45am 11:15am
Lunch 11:15am 11:45am
Lecture & Discussion 11:45am 1:15pm
Implementation & Practice 1:30pm 3:00pm
Physics Camps

In the Physics camp, the structure of periods will vary slightly from course to course. There is more theory, therefore more lectures, in introductory level courses. As courses advance there is more problem solving discussion. A typical schedule may look like the following.

Activity Begin End
Lecture & Discussion 8:00am 9:30am
Lecture & Discussion 9:45am 11:15am
Lunch 11:15am 11:45am
Guided Problem Solving 11:45am 1:15pm
Problem Solving Practice 1:30pm 3:00pm
Aren't we supposed to get a break from ZOOM Already?

Are Online Summer Camps a Good Idea?

A learning environment where students are able to interactively engage with teacher, other students, and other course resources is certainly meaningful and valuable. If you make the best of it, an online summer camp may be as effective as its physical counterpart in our experience.

We, as teachers and as parents, know how you feel about the recent COVID-19 educational changes. As you've certainly noticed, following an online class requires additional self-discipline and serious engagement with the course material. We advise you to encourage to explore our courses while remembering that online courses lack certain dynamics of a traditional classroom inherently provides. In a traditional classroom, a teacher may reign in the attention of their students, thereby ensuring their engagement with the material. However, within an online setting, self-diligence and motivation become essential in maintaining the engagement to further your academic goals. 

Is Online Summer Camp for You?
Communicative Participation is Critical for Success

Effectiveness of online classes has a strong correlation with active communication between the student to engage with the course instructor. Students may easily ask questions via chat without waiting and interrupting the instruction. For self conscious students private chat is a great option.

Takeaway: If your student is comfortable in expressing their questions, online learning can be as useful as a traditional physical class.   

Group Collaboration Helps with Engagement

We encourage students to engage with other students and collaborate during and after the class using the technology provided. However, nothing can beat physical presence together in a classroom environment.

Takeaway: If you have a safe way of arranging a small group who will take the same class, then we certainly recommend the online summer camp for your group. As a bonus, all of your group members will get sibling discount.    

Lighten the Intensity with Early Access Option

Students may start studying the course materials in advance with the self study versions of the same curriculum. By the time summer camp starts, if they master some of the material, it will help build their confidence. This also means that they may focus on their specific questions during the lectures.

Takeaway: If you can commit to the early access and study somewhat in advance, online summer camp is going to be beneficial for you. 

Helpful STAR LEAGUE Policies for Planning your Summer Camp Participation
Take a Break and Come Back

If the intensity of the summer camp schedule is what's holding you back, perhaps there is a solution. For some courses, we offer multiple sessions during the summer. Instead of taking a contigous two-three week long class, you may break it in two pieces. This may allow renewed focus for the student.

Flexible Cancellation Policy

If early access option is not requested, you may cancel the registration after the first day of class by paying a prorated daily rate. This may serve as an insurance policy, if you are not 100% sure that online camp is for your student. See full cancellation policies here. You may also consider tutoring at your own schedule. 

Recordings & Post Access

We provide access to the summer camp course materials and the recordings until September 2022. If the student cannot complete all the work during the summer camp period, they may be completed later during the summer. Keep in mind that offline teacher support will still be available even after the summer camp.

Leader in Comprehensive Academic Summer Camps

STAR LEAGUE

Established 2013

Since early last decade, we have been running summer camps across the country mainly in the West Coast but also in Boston and New York too! 

Experienced Teachers

We only employ qualified and experienced teachers. Most of them are participants and champions of the target competitions of their subjects worldwide.

Rigorous & Comprehensive

Our curriculum is kept up to date by world champions to withstand the rigor of target competitions. The coursework presents all that is needed and more.  

Online Pre COVID-19

We are experts in online learning. We started out in 2015 ,and have been continually improving our technology and practices to meet the needs of our students.  

Hands on Learning

Withiut practice, learning new and intensive material can be unrewarding. Our summer camp daily programs include interactive practice time led by student interest and needs.  

Coaching

Most of our teachers are not only subject matter expert but also experienced academic competition coaches. They will answer your guidance questions too.  

Early Access

We provide early access to the camp coursework so students can start studying in advance. That way, student's interaction with teacher will be optimized.

Small Size

We keep our instructor/student ratio at about one to tewelve. If student number is more than 12, a second instructor is added up to a max of eighteen  students
