for rising 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders
Summer Excursions is a small-group learning camp for students with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. Children entering first, second or third grade in the fall are eligible to take “educational excursions” through language, reading and math. The camp is divided into two thematic units and is limited to six students per group. Groupings are determined on the basis of age and individual student needs. Camper/staff ratio is 6:1.
Academic skills in oral and written language, as well as reading and math, are integrated into stimulating thematic content to ensure maximum success and enjoyment. During this summer session of camp, students will experience and explore the Savannah Region, as well as learn about the Human Body. During the first session of camp, students will explore the Savannah regions and its inhabitants. The Human Body will be the focus of study for the second session of the summer. Students will design and build each habitat, as well as research the animals and vegetation for the Savannah region. Campers bring a sack lunch from home daily and drinks are provided.
