Summer Boost (8:30 am to 12:30 pm)

In the morning, students build skills in a fun environment through small group classes in curriculum areas such as language arts, math, outdoor education, science, music, and art.
Students have one Language Skills Development session each day.

There are two options:

Orton-Gillingham 1:1 tutoring will be offered on a student-by-student basis. During this class a student works with an Orton-Gillingham certified language specialist on a program specifically designed to meet unique needs in the areas of reading, spelling, writing and handwriting. Please contact the school to discuss your child’s needs at 604 736 5575.

The emphasis of this class will be on developing writing skills. In the Language Arts program, multiple methods and instructional strategies are used to deliver whole group and individualized learning instruction. The foundation of this program is language instruction delivered through the Orton-Gillingham approach.

Three additional classes/camp complete the morning schedule.

Academic classes are taught with a maximum of 8 students per class. Parents select class preferences following registration. Note: classes are subject to change.

In the science program, we apply inquiry based instruction, in which students take part in interactive lessons to enhance critical thinking. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions, design procedures, carry out investigations, and analyze data. Each week students will focus on a unique project.

In the math program, multi-modal materials and instructional strategies are utilized. Students are taught in small groups with up to five students. The progression of skill delivery will be individualized to meet student needs.

Campers will be lead in a variety of outdoor activities geared towards developing teamwork and an enjoyment of physical activity. Students will also be given the opportunity to design games to play together and learn new leadership skills.

This class is geared to give campers a positive music experience, while they learn to sing and play the drums, electric guitar and a variety of percussion instruments. This is a great opportunity for kids to find a way to express themselves.

Campers will have a hands-on experience of exploring different fine arts media. Each week will focus on a unique project.

Campers will develop a variety of kitchen skills including baking, snacks and simple meals. They will have an opportunity to to use fresh ingredients from the school garden to supplement their recipes.

Campers will be introduced to a variety of drama techniques and games to have fun as well as build self-confidence, self-esteem and collaborative skills. This will be a unique opportunity for students to express themselves in new and creative ways.
