Shiver Me Timbers and Ahoy Thar Maties! This camp offers a perfect transition between morning and afternoon sessions. This way, your child can attend additional camps on either end of the day if desired. If you would like your child to engage in some additional, individualized instruction then please sign him/her up for the 12:00-2:00 Buccaneer Book Club time.
Camp Goals: Students ages 7-14 are welcome to bring a sack lunch and eat, while listening and reading along with various captivating books. There will be time for some hearty pirate singing, reader’s theater, individual reading and hands-on projects as well. This class is designed to give students additional reading confidence by building critical thinking, comprehension and reading fluency skills. The main goal is for students to come away with the feeling that reading is truly a wonderful adventure! Argh… Sign up soon before the ship sails away.
How to sign up: This camp will be run on a punch card system. You can purchase as many hours of camp as you think you will attend this summer, in sets of 4 hours @ $5/hr. Each week of camp is either 2 or 4 hours, depending on how long you stay!
