2024 Summer Camp:  

Tidewater Collegiate Academy at Virginia Wesleyan University (TCA) is excited to offer summer camp programs to develop 21st century skills with a specific emphasis on service learning.  We help keep your camper's brains engaged while school is out, and help them develop a belief that they can make a difference in their world.  All programs are supervised by licensed teachers with expert guests including local artists, scientists, lawyers, professors, and engineers.
