Description: Camp Little Scholars will provide reading, vocabulary, writing, math, and STEM activities for students entering kindergarten, first, or second grade during the 2024-2025 school year. Science and social studies will be integrated through hands-on and engaging activities. The program will have a strong emphasis on early literacy and numeracy. Skills taught during this program will be based on the Georgia Standards of Excellence, giving students a head start for the 2024-2025 school year. Students may also participate in music, art, dance, and/or Spanish classes. The program's purpose is to provide academic and social-emotional support during June to prevent the “summer slide,” which is the loss of some of the achievement gains students have made during the previous school year.

Students will participate in FUN, engaging activities as they visit four different themes. The kindergarten themes include Diving into the Deep Blue Sea, Down on the Farm, a Safari in the Savannah, and the Wild World of Dinosaurs. First Grade themes include Blasting Off into Space, Diving into the Deep Blue Sea, Into the Great Outdoors, and Over in the Rainforest. Second Grade themes will consist of a trip around the world to Ancient Egypt, Australia, China, and Mexico. During each theme, students will focus on academic standards that will build the foundation students need to be successful in school.

Meals and modified transportation will be provided.
