Summer Camp at The Odyssey School
Reading, Art, and Creative Writing Followed by Afternoon Activities with Coppermine
The summer camp morning session offers children entering 1st grade through 8th grade the opportunity for specialized reading and writing instruction tailored to meet the individual needs of the students.
Odyssey's summer camp teachers are highly trained and experienced in developing children's reading and writing skills to ensure success in the coming school year. Summer Camp at The Odyssey School is an enriching and creative program offering instruction in writing and reading in the morning, and games, sports, and outdoor discovery in the afternoon!
The Writers and Creators Workshop
This 2 hour hands-on creative writing and art workshop provides children with language learning differences the opportunity to discover exciting new ways to view the writing process. We offer small classroom settings with highly skilled faculty in the areas of language arts, creative writing and art.
We value our students’ vibrant imaginations, and encourage them to express themselves through a variety of mediums including poetry, short stories, comic strips, and songwriting.
By the end of our intensive five week program, our students will have many beautiful pieces of art to take home, as well as the confidence, skills, and independence to succeed in their future writing endeavors.
Reading and Writing Tutoring
In addition to the Writers and Creators Workshop, students will have a portion of the morning devoted to individualized instruction in reading using specialized, research based and multisensory approaches.
Tutors are highly trained in teaching reading to children diagnosed with dyslexia or other language learning differences. The 1:1 or 1:2 tutor student teaching ratio provides the opportunity for intensive, personalized reading instruction for every child.
Small group, forty-five minute sessions of math offer campers the opportunity to develop their strengths for math fact fluency, math vocabulary, and comprehension of word problems. Each day, campers will be applying their creative thinking and reasoning skills in multisensory activities and logic/problem solving games that bolster their number sense, reasoning, and problem solving strategies.
The math instructor is a veteran educator who has had direct experience teaching math across the grade levels to students with language learning differences.
Afternoon Fun by Coppermine
The very best Coppermine coaches will join The Odyssey School each afternoon to provide quality programs for your child. We take pride in the fact that we understand kids, and set the bar high for our child development and sports curriculum.
