Academic Enrichment

Parents are wondering, "How can my camper catch-up? The online learning provided did not support my camper."

Most students lose about two months of grade-level equivalency in reading and mathematical computation skills over the summer months—what educators and researchers refer to as “summer learning loss” or “summer brain drain.” With COVID-19, the academic loss is even greater. To support our senior campers, Green Acres Camp offers a variety of academic choices: Book Buzz, Young Authors and π Club. Unit D to Unit I can enjoy academic enrichment classes at no additional charge. These classes are scaffolded to meet the needs of diverse learners while being really fun and engaging!

At the end of the camp session, the instructor will email a summary report to each parent/guardian that describes the camper’s successes as well as areas for continued practice during the remaining weeks of summer. Raz-Kids and Splash Math will be available for club participants to use through the end of August, so learning and progress can continue!
