Courage Schools offers a four week, half-day immersive literacy camp for students with language based learning differences. Students are placed in instructional cohorts that match their learning needs and receive 90 minutes of literacy instruction each day. The literacy instruction is developed by trained educators to meet the needs of their instructional cohort. Literacy campers work on decoding, encoding, reading comprehension, writing, and expressive language skills. Younger cohorts will also receive instruction in letter/sound correspondence and handwriting.
What is a summer program without fun? Courage is a STEAM based program so campers enjoy STEAM each day along with play breaks.
Literacy campers are not required to have a formal diagnosis to attend and all campers are required to visit Courage Schools before camp for a pre-assessment which allows camp teachers to place them in appropriate cohorts and build an instructional plan to meet the needs of campers.
Courage School’s Summer Program runs the month of June with registration opening the middle of January.
Please contact Courage’s Director of Auxiliary Programming, Leighann McDowell, with any questions.
