Build Foundational Reading Skills
This summer reading program is about targeting and building the foundational skills that are necessary to become a successful reader. If you are looking for a basic reading program that is just reading and answering questions, this is not it.
This summer reading program focuses on building phonemic awareness, reading fluency, comprehension, and improving the ability to decode and encode words. We work on visualization, note taking, critical thinking, and more.
When you take a holistic approach to reading, you can dramatically improve your reading skills not just in school, but in life.
Rebuild, Regain, Restore
Literacy Skills Lost During COVID-19!
It's summer camp and so much more. The Reading camps are all about your child. Each day overflows with variety, hands-on learning, fitness, fun and HAPPY surprises... and each camper's experience is tailored precisely to what that camper needs to excel as a reader.
Kids who attend our camp will make strides in spelling, decoding, fluency, and comprehension. They will discover a deeper appreciation for books and reading... among friends who share their interests.
And they will enhance their overall literacy skills including: Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing!
When and Where: Choose one week, two weeks or more! We strongly suggest at least two weeks to allow time for assessment and implementation of the optimal program for your child. All campers will be assessed at the start of camp, but only those who attend for at least two weeks will receive a full assessment afterwards.
For 2022, The Summer Reading Camp is hosted at the NLI training center. Enrollment is open for school-aged children who are at least 5 but younger than 10 years old. Decide which dates and special themes appeal most to you. All camps are half-day, running from 9:45am to 12noon or 1:00pm to 4:00pm Monday through Friday.
NEW THIS YEAR: There are more themes than ever before! At registration, you will be asked to select a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice for the one theme your camper will experience during that session. All campers will receive their 1st choice, unless we discuss an alternative with you in advance of the start of camp.

What is a virtual summer camp?
A virtual summer camp takes all the best parts of a traditional summer camp – fun activities, great camp counselors, and making new friends – and transfers them online. Virtual summer camps are a great way to add a bit of structure to your camper’s summer without (or in addition to) sending them to expensive sleepaway camps.
How do you make a virtual camp fun?
Making virtual summer camps fun is all about interactivity. After all, even educational summer camps are meant to be fun! A good virtual summer camp will be more than just an instructor lecturing a group of students or having them work alone on school-like projects. Varsity Tutors instructors create engaging, fun experiences by blending on and offline activities to make sessions that get campers moving, learning, and collaborating. Campers will enjoy working with their peers to build their literacy skills.
How do you do a summer camp at home?
Online summer camps make it easy for parents to provide their learners with engaging, interactive learning experiences from home. Students simply need to log in to their virtual summer camp from a computer or tablet and they’ll be connected with an expert instructor and new friends from around the world. For hands-on projects, summer camp supply lists are sent out well in advance and focus on easy-to-obtain household items so that online summer campers can enjoy innovative projects and parents can enjoy convenient setup.
