Stratford Friends Summer Camp is a four week academic camp for students K-9th with language-based learning differences. Optional afternoon adventures feature traditional camp activities including instructional and recreational swimming, the arts, STEM, field trips, special guests & more! This year’s camp will run June 29 – July 24th. (Closed on July 3rd in observation of the 4th of July holiday)
Our multi-sensory reading program focuses on phonemic awareness, decoding and fluency through structured, discovery-learning lessons. Writing is broken down into manageable steps. Reading literature and developing comprehension strategies are emphasized. Over the course of four (4) weeks, each class reads a novel and develops comprehension games to be played at Family Literacy Night, which takes place during the final week of camp.
Math class, also multi-sensory, solidifies math facts, develops problem-solving strategies and strengthens conceptual understanding of math. Students engage in fun activities that enable them to apply math skills in practical and relevant tasks such as building, graphing, designing, and measuring.
Students swim twice (2) weekly, receiving basic instruction and playing pool games.
Afternoons offer opportunities for students to participate in a wide variety of workshops. Art, drama, music, robotics, cooking and coding are just some of the activities offered.
Come and Play
We run through sprinklers, play on the swings, and on our newly renovated playground; we explore, create, or simply find a shady spot to hang with friends – so much fun to be found on our 8-acre campus!
Family Literacy Night
We’ll let families know which book each class is reading and encourage you to read along with your child. During the last week of Summer School, families are invited to join us for Family Literacy Night, an evening of book-themed games and activities created by your students.
