Middle School Academic Camp
Ages 9-15
Campers will do a variety of activities, games, exploration, and learning that will orient them and introduce (or re-introduce) them to middle school academics, organizational systems, research, and the importance of grit and keeping a positive attitude and outlook. Focuses include what they don’t know yet (if they’re rising fifth, such as topics they may have touched upon in fourth but are not yet fluent with, like the decimal system and working with decimals) and what they do or should know (nuts & bolts academics—grammar, reading comprehension, research, and math facts and fluency). There will also be time allotted for regular camp things, games, outdoor time, snacks, etc., in order to break up the monotony and keep the day fun and exciting for all campers.
