We give each child what they most need - and that doesn't stop in the summer. Our summer camps for children with language-based learning difficulties cater to the educational needs of campers - from teaching decoding skills to reinforcing skills learned during the school year to preparing kids for high school.
In our new remote model for 2020, students have the opportunity for academic classes including 1:1 tutoring and small group instruction in writing, math, and cognitive led by Summer@Carroll teachers. And for kids craving social connection, our Camp Re-Imagined offers small group fun activities such as yoga, at-home gym games, outdoor art classes, summer science, Master Chef, and more!
Dates: June 29 - July 30, 2020
Days: Mondays-Thursdays, 40-minute blocks between 8:30am and 12:10pm (students have individualized schedules)
Mandatory Student Orientation: Wed, June 24, 2020
Enrolled families, please visit the Summer Parents page for information about this year's program.

Summer at CarRoll Parent Review
"Our daughter attended Summer@Carroll as a Beginning Reader during the summer after her kindergarten year and before first grade. We had identified issues with letter recognition, and she was already beginning to get frustrated with school and seemed to give up easily. We wanted to change this trajectory before she decided that she 'wasn’t good at' school, by finding a setting where she could learn in a way that was more tailored to her needs and therefore could gain confidence. Summer@Carroll was exactly this setting for her.
We were amazed at what they were able to accomplish in six weeks. She did gain confidence and her attitude toward school changed. She loved it there and so she enjoyed going, even though she had 'do school work' during the summer. They also had a lot of fun! Her progress definitely carried over into 1st grade. Her standardized reading and math tests showed that she made progress over the summer, and most importantly, she felt much better about school. Her teacher says that when the class is sounding out words together, our daughter is often the first one to raise her hand to volunteer. She is making real progress in reading and spelling words, and that is causing her confidence and interest in school to grow as well. We feel very grateful that she had the opportunity to participate in the Summer@Carroll program, and do feel like it made an important change in her path as a student."
