Early Learning Summer Camp

​This is a camp for families with preschoolers and children entering Kindergarten and first grade. From 10:00am – 2:00pm young students with their parents will have access to online early learning programing for 1 hour every day. Educators familiar with the online program will be on site to assist parents with helping their children to learn and get prepared to enter kindergarten or first grade. Four computer stations are available for 4 weeks in August every summer and a volunteer educator is assigned to each station. Each computer station accommodates up to 4 registered students for a total of 16 students. Parents can sign up for 1 week or all 4 weeks.
