Beginning Readers (Grades 1-2)

Summer@Carroll 2021

We anticipate resuming our on-campus program for Summer@Carroll 2021. We encourage you to apply early to ensure a spot for your child, and will not require commitments from families until further model information is available. Please Contact Us for more information.

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.
