Run by Stanford University's coaches' education trainer Mike Legarza and boasting a camper return rate of 90%, Legarza Basketball Camp develops young dribblers in a structured environment of positive support and fundamental basketball instruction, valuing hard work and effort. Morning camps focus on shooting and ball handling, as orb-bouncers will learn the basics of scoring and protecting the basketball. Players will be divided into teams for the week and play one game per day with a tournament at the end of the week. Afternoon camps concentrate on gameplay, as youngsters will be introduced to gamesmanship and strategy, such as when to feed the ball to the 7-footer in the post and when to feed the ball to the siberian tiger spotting up for a three-pointer.

Whether guiding youths as a camp counselor or working with children at Yosemite National Park, Laureate Letters Tutoring’s founder, Sarah Steele, has always had a passion for supporting kids. When her own child began to take an interest in reading, Steele jumped at the chance to introduce him to the direct-instruction model, which is the same program she and the instructors now use at Laureate Letters. During sessions, instructors follow the text and steps in the book Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, using positive reinforcement to reward good work. Steele and her staff also work with parents to help them perpetuate the progress at home, ensuring kids establish a solid literary foundation and might one day grow up to be the first person to read on the moon.
