Program Description and Design: Designed specifically for students with learning disabilities, our summer camp builds social connections, reduces learning loss, and helps fill gaps in literacy and numeracy. The LDAHH Summer Camp will run for all nine weeks of the summer*, beginning July 5th and ending September 3rd. Each week will have a different theme (see below). Staff will program plan activities based on the theme of the week, with a focus on literacy, numeracy and social-emotional learning. Each week the campers will have the opportunity to go on a field trip or watch a special guest presentation. At the end of each week, there will be a celebration of skills and parents will be invited to attend.  


*At this time, it has not been decided whether our camp will run in-person or online. Therefore, payment will be collected at a later date 

Rationale: The LDAHH would like to run a Summer Camp program for students with suspected or diagnosed LDs. Through the pandemic many of our students have been missing out on socialization opportunities and falling behind in school. The aim of this program is to provide a safe space for students to socialize and learn. The summer camp will include fun, educational activities centered around the theme of each week. Campers aged 5-11 will be put into groups no larger than five according to their age. The small counsellor to camper ratio will allow our staff to build stronger relationships with each camper.
