Over the last two years, Reading Camp Calvert has been a virtual experience thanks to Covid-19 safety protocols. We are excited to kick off our return to a one week, in person day camp, designed to help underachieving students improve their reading skills, while experiencing just how fun reading can be.
Reading Camp Calvert serves rising 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students who are reluctant or emerging readers and are at least one grade level behind in reading based on their teacher recommendation. During the week, campers will engage in reading and writing activities in the morning, and traditional camp and field trip activities in the afternoon. They also receive breakfast, lunch and snacks during the day. At the end of the week campers will take home a new backpack with books they choose from our camp library. We all know that as a community, we are only as strong as our weakest link, so helping struggling readers become proficient readers benefits us all. Helping our campers changes their lives in so many ways.
