    WRITING INSTRUCTION

         Children will practice writing skills every day with a special emphasis on learning how to organize their thoughts and writing.

    TECHNOLOGY INSTRUCTION

            Children in grades 2 through 8 are taught keyboarding skills and how to use reading, writing, and math software. For children in preschool through grade 1, computer time is also provided.

           MATH INSTRUCTION

         Children participate in hands-on math activities using a game format and lots of practice reinforcing and applying their math skills. It is our goal to have your child memorize math facts by the end of Camp Achieve.

    For Summer 2019, we will be providing additional Spanish Language Instruction

    for all Camp Achievers.  

    Social Skills Outings

    In addition to weekly social skills instruction, students participate in several off-campus outings in which they are provided the opportunity to practice their social skills with other students. The outings are led by Dr. Melissa Scherzer who develops the groups with selected role models so students can build and maintain friendships.
