Program Info

“So, the writer who breeds more words than he needs is making a chore for the reader who reads” – Dr. Seuss

During this exciting course, campers will be able to enhance and develop their growing skills in reading and writing. Campers will have a chance to read and write independently, engage with the instructor and each other to deepen their reading comprehension, and expand their level of writing through the use of a variety of literacy skills, strategies, and tools.
