What better way to create fond childhood memories than a meaningful experience at Spectrum Summer Programs at Tandem Friends? For over 40 years, Spectrum has offered an exciting array of creative classes designed to provoke thought and pique new interests. Spectrum offers your child an abundance of creative possibilities.
The Tandem Friends campus provides a friendly, relaxed environment for creative self-expression. Teen assistants will help eliminate feelings being lost or overwhelmed, particularly with younger children. The wonderful energy created when young people of different abilities and talented teachers work together is one of the many aspects that makes Spectrum unique. Two-week sessions allow ample time for children to realize in-depth exploration of their creative choices and a four-period day provides opportunities for curious students to experiment and try something different.
