Summer Youth College at PBSC's Boca Raton campus is Boca’s best kept secret.  The summer program is for children ages 8 through 14 featuring activities specializing in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math, and Recreation!  SYC creates an “educating” summer enrichment environment that contains over 150 classes designed to assist in gaining resiliency, creating innovative projects, and gaining life-long skills.  There are three tracks of the camp.  The 2-week specialty camp begins the Monday following the close of Palm Beach County Schools, the 6-week track contains over 150 sessions arranged in a college style schedule, and the 1-week track ends the summer just days before school reopens. SYC is the last camp you’ll ever need!
