As a springboard to the Saturday morning test, students will receive 16 hours of intensive instruction supplemented by drills tailored to their specific areas of need. Students of every level of proficiency are encouraged to attend. One of the campers from 2019 used what they learned from the camp to improve their score by 6 overall points!

Stories will come to life as students play favorite characters and discover what may have happened before, after, and in other parts of these well-loved stories. Story drama is a wonderful tool for students to explore literacy and critical thinking skills through dramatic play and imaginative games.
