  • Description - The Learning Camp

    The Learning Camp carefully blends reading, writing and arithmetic with all the fun of traditional summer camps. We practice academics in the mornings while the afternoons and evenings are filled with excitement and adventure. And each camper receives an education program based upon their needs which are determined by input from parents, their schools and our staff. Academic programs at The Learning Camp are designed for children with average, or above average IQ's that learn differently. We are not a camp for children with emotional or behavior disorders. However, there are many great camps that we could recommend for children with those special needs. Most of our campers have been identified with a learning disability such as dyslexia, dyscalcula, processing disorders, NLD and ADHD or ADD. We also serve many children that merely need summer practice in the fundamentals. Campers at The Learning Camp gain a positive attitude about their academic abilities. Unlike the regular school setting, campers practice fundamentals in small, intimate groups gathered outside under trees or on the shores of Spring Creek. Classes are organized according to age and the academic needs of the camper. Children are not given after-class assignments and so there is no homework or additional testing. Instead, we focus on working very intensely on the basics a few hours each day, and then enjoy all the activities of any given day at summer camp. We incorporate many different types of instructional strategies. There are now many summer camps in the world serving the LD, ADHD and ADD child, but none like our camp! Your camper will have the opportunity to choose to participate in any of the following activities: Swimming, Horseback Riding, Rock Climbing, Colorado River Rafting, Canoeing, Archery, Backpacking, Camping, Caving, Fishing, Arts & Crafts, Camp Fires & Camp Skits, Board games, Softball, Soccer, Tetherball, and Basketball.
