We will spend our mornings practicing grade-specific skills needed to move up to the next level! Please do not let your child believe they will be coming to “school” during the summer! NO WAY!!! We will have tons of FUN!!! Each afternoon we will enjoy enrichment activities, awesome field trips and much more! Each student will receive a camp t-shirt!
