We are excited to see your kids in person this summer at both our Denver and Littleton Lakewood locations.  We will be following best practice COVID safety recommendations per the state and city while continuing to offer expert Orton-Gillingham Intervention with highly qualified educators.  This intensive instruction supports students in reading, writing, and spelling. Our STEAM math/writing hour builds skills while growing self-confidence. That with our rehearsal hall time makes for the best opportunity for kids to improve academic skills.
 
We know our team of passionate, experienced educators is dedicated to providing one-to-one or very small group expert intervention to support individualized instruction to meet the needs of your child via an e-learning platform.   Engagement with a flair, embracing the silly and the fun.  We build relationships of trust and respect with our campers and families that extend beyond our camp sessions. We build community.

 

We welcome older students into our advocacy program and love to have them support our younger students!

Instruction

 

ORTON-GILLINGHAM 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/ Writing 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:  This hour is effectively a 3rd hour of intervention as the students go into depth with hands-on work provided by their tutor.  This reinforces skills that have been taught and solidifies knowledge. Students have lots of assistance and support often provided by older students with dyslexia who are amazing role models.
