Beginning Readers (Grades 1-2)

Our Beginning Readers camp is for bright children entering 1 or 2 grade who struggle with pre-reading and language skills. They may have been formally diagnosed with a specific learning disability (SLD) or a language-based learning disability (LBLD); or identified as "at risk" in an early literacy screening.

In the morning, self-contained, small classes led by trained teachers and tutors offer ideal academic support for these early learners.

In the afternoon, camp counselors take over to offer fun camp experiences.
