Super Star Summer Camp 2020
COVID information - given that most districts will not be having students attend school for the balance of the year we know that it is critical for our kids to get the intervention they need. Are we are on hold awaiting guidance for summer it is our fondest hope to be able to be at our camp locations. Some of the magic of camp is our ability to work together. If that is deemed safe we will proceed. If not we are working on alternative - online formats. Fortunately, we have expertise in online learning and will do it well.
Let us hope that by June we will all be safe!
In the meantime, we have suspended payments but still encourage you to register as we expect to fill up as the need is so great. May we all we well!

Building literacy and math skills, self-esteem and confidence for students who want summer support, struggle or have dyslexia.
We are very excited to invite you to be a part of our supportive community and join us for the 6th year of our life-changing, confidence-building, literacy camp. We are offering a program created specifically to build and improve skills in reading and spelling, with additional support in writing and math. This camp is designed for students entering 1st - 9th grade who are identified with dyslexia or who otherwise struggle with reading, spelling, writing, and math.
We welcome older students into our advocacy program and love to have them support our younger students!
Monday - Thursday - Intervention Days
Friday - Fun Days & Last day of camp we offer conferences with parents
Reading Tutoring: small groups (maximum of four well-matched students; with a one-to-one option available).
Math/Writing and Rehearsal Hall: skill level groups.
Writing/Math: 2 days a week for each subject. Rehearsal Hall is the time set aside daily where we practice to become stars!
STEAM/Entrepreneurship: our students thrive with hands-on activities and this year we are planning to include a STEAM/entrepreneurship opportunity for them to enjoy.
Keyboarding, Intensive Math, Intensive Writing: Available by special arrangement and an additional fee.
We have a staff of highly qualified Orton Gillingham (Y-OG) trained specialists consisting of special and general educators from the Denver Metro area. Each of these exceptional educators is passionate about kids and especially those with literacy struggles, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. Our Executive Director, Elenn Steinberg, is Wilson and International Dyslexia Association Certified and highly skilled in the OG methodology. She is a partner in Orton Gillingham International, one of the most highly respected OG organizations in the US and abroad. Our Director, Shane Baxter, is a Speech-Language Pathologist currently with the Cherry Creek School district. He is in the process of his Orton-Gillingham Certification as well as becoming a trainer for Orton-Gillingham International.
READING INTERVENTION: Groups will be a maximum of 4 students who are well-matched in skill level, personality, and focus. Small group teaching allows students to support each other and feel more confident. There also is an opportunity for one-on-one instruction if that best fits the student.
MATH: Small groups of students with comparable skills and ages. Instruction will be multi-sensory and fun. Students will acquire strategies that respect their learning style, thus allowing them to succeed in math.
WRITING: Small group sessions that include engaging projects designed to inspire students to understand the joy of writing. Students will learn the skills needed to write a good sentence, paragraph, and short essay or story. Too often dyslexic students are expected to produce quality writing but seldom given an understanding of the structure necessary to produce quality work. Our writing program provides the opportunity to build skills, test planning, and use graphic organizing methods. We also will focus on correct grammar and editing skills.
STEAM/Entrepreneurship: STEAM is an educational approach that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Students are free to wonder, investigate, explore, discuss, design, and “think outside the box.” Each week there will be a new area of STEAM; including, science, technology, engineering, entrepreneurship, and art where the Super Star campers will complete various hands-on projects. Do you think designing a robot would be fun? What are your thoughts on building a catapult? Does a nature scavenger hunt sound exciting? These activities and many more are all a part of our new STEAM/Entrepreneurship block. Join us and show us your personality, be creative, problem-solve, collaborate with other campers, and have loads of fun doing it! At the same time, we will explore what it means to be an Entrepreneur. How cool is that?
REHEARSAL HALL: Rehearsal Hall gives students time daily to practice the skills that they learned in tutoring session and might include oral fluency practice, reading practice, worksheets, and games.
PARENT EDUCATION: Held on Friday mornings while the students play. We invite parents to hear speakers and share and receive information that will assist them in supporting their kids. Topics currently under consideration: Understanding Dyslexia, Technology Tools, IEP and 504, Growing Self Advocating Kids.
