R2L Summer Camp allows children to continue building essential reading skills during the summer, a time when many students lose academic ground gained during the school year
We invite students enrolled in our after-school program as well as children enrolled at our school sites to participate in ongoing tutoring sessions. In addition to our regular reading tutoring program, children in the summer camp program have an opportunity to engage in hands-on learning activities and field trips.
Our staff also serves 72 students at three nearby partner organizations during the summer. By providing programming during other summer camps, Readers 2 Leaders reaches more students with our proven model of literacy enrichment.
In 2016, 90 percent of Booktown campers did NOT experience the summer slide, according to Dallas education partnership organization Commit!, making R2L the most impactful reading program of the 12 participating organizations.
look out for more information on Summer Camp 2017 in April 2017!
Open to students entering kindergarten through 5th grade in Fall 2016 that live or go to school in West Dallas (75212 zip code).
Priority enrollment for students currently enrolled in Team Read. Once spots are filled by current R2L students, enrollment will be open to students not currently enrolled in an R2L tutoring program.
Enrollment for Summer Camp 2017 will open in April.
