Did you know that math, art, and games are closely related?  Watch art, strategy and logic come together in Calculations & Creations!  You will learn about the history and beauty of math by appreciating famous artists and strategy games from around the world.  You’ll draw and color tessellations (repeated pattern art that covers a page without overlaps or gaps), create your own mancala board just as the ancient Africans did, design a frieze like the Native Americans, and learn that Sudoku has its roots in the mathematician’s “Magic Square”.  You’ll learn about the history and people involved – all through hands-on, creative activities from around the world.  The best part is that you’ll get to take home your own games and art to share with your family.

Let Your Literacy Grow Workshops are designed to support struggling or reluctant readers and writers through a variety of reading and writing experiences in order to help them develop into independent readers and writers. Research shows that good readers enjoy the experience of reading. A balanced approach to literacy instruction begins with creating a genuine appreciation for good literature. The goals of this workshop are to provide varied instructional activities to enable children to move to higher levels of reading and literacy development. These activities include: • Direct phonics instruction, including focusing on individual sounds, using sounds to build words, and using words to construct sentences • Reading comprehension strategies, including making predictions and connections, vocabulary development, inferencing, asking questions, summarizing, and determining cause and effect • Written responses to literature These workshops are taught in a small, supportive environment of no more than 6 children, providing extensive opportunities for children to  enjoy the pleasure of being good readers! Assessment: Teachers will assess the students on a scheduled date prior to camp to ensure correct placement. Depending on scheduling, your child may or may not be assessed by the teacher they will have at camp.  Conference: Parents may schedule an optional 10 minute mini-conference during the last week of camp.
