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 100 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 2017, 94 percent of Summer Camp students at Booktown did NOT experience the summer slide, according to Commit! That means they maintained or grew their reading skills and went back to school ready to learn.
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 2018 will open in April.
Please call (214) 905-0095 to sign up to receive information or to enroll.
