Reading and Writing Camp
Summer is a fantastic time to foster the joys of reading and writing in your child. Through books, readers enter new worlds, explore their interests, and fuel their imaginations. Through writing, young authors create their worlds and discover their voices. Strengthening literacy skills over the summer months builds learners’ confidence and interest in reading and writing and prepares learners for the challenges of the upcoming school year. Reader’s theater, quick writes, a word a day, brain breaks, and reading and writing poems or short stories are just a few examples of final writing projects students will produce. Worcester Academy’s summer camp offers something special for every child, whether you are looking to inspire and motivate your reluctant reader or writer or seek enrichment for your bookworm or budding author.
