Academic Fun & Fitness Camp
for Northeast Ohio children with learning disabilities like Dyslexia and ADD/ADHD.
An “Un-School Camp” at Lakeland Community College, sponsored by the Creative Education Institute
June 12th – July 21st, 2017
This unique camp is for children ages 6 to 19 with learning disabilities: ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger’s Syndrome, LD, etc.
Children with learning differences often become so frustrated by school experiences that they never realize learning can be a lot of fun. Campers play and have fun while gaining new perspectives on learning and developing the social skills and self-esteem needed to be successful.
At this “un-school camp”, instructors and aides use games, multi-sensory techniques, and systematic instruction to improve basic reading and math skills. Small group instruction and a personalized curriculum allow for strong academic success. Additional activities include:
- Theatre Arts week
- Hands-on science activities
- Pet therapy
- Non-competitive sports:
- Music therapy
- Art therapy
- Camp Carnival
- “Be Safe” Program for older campers – how to interact with the police (odd-numbered years)
Full- and half-day sessions are available. (Full-day session includes lunch and two snacks.) Before and after care is included in the cost of camp.
