Get in the Back to School mood with our Skill Sharpener Camp! This camp is designed specifically to help students get back into the swing of things as they head in to a new grade level. Each day of camp, students will be led by licensed teachers to review materials and foundational skills in Reading and Math in engaging and fun ways. Students will also participate in a hands-on STEM activity or craft each day and time spent outdoors. By the end of the week, students will be feeling ready to head back to school and get to work!
