Customize FUN Summer is set to LAUNCH! Sample Daily Schedule Summer Academics We know that during the summer we must also further our campers learning by providing the skills to: · “learn to communicate mathematically” · organize and consolidate their mathematical, scientific and historical thinking through communication and comprehension · Communicate mathematical thinking coherently, precisely and clearly · Analyze and evaluate the mathematical and scientific thinking and strategies of others Based on these requirements we recognized that our academic program had to contain Math, Language Arts and Comprehension to insure the building of our camper’s skills in each of these areas. Session for 1st-2nd Grade The math session: 8:30-9:15. The Language Arts & Comprehension session: 9:20-10:05 am. Session for 3rd-5th Grade The math session: 10:25-11:10 am. The Language Arts & Comprehension session: 11:15-12:00. This schedule allows your child to take advantage of both subjects. A qualified teacher will teach these classes. Class size is limited to 15 students. Please fill out the form below to reserve your child’s space in these classes. Summer Academics costs $60.00 per week, for registered campers. If you child is only attending Academic Camp see the office for the rate. Payments must be made on the Monday of the scheduled week in order for the camper to participate. Space is limited! Cancellations and additions require a one week notice.
