Camps aim to help students remain academically active throughout their Summer vacations and help students improve their math, science, computer, reading, and writing skills. Trained volunteer tutors, from the Library’s well-known After-School Homework Support Center, work with students in small, age-specific groups on specified enrichment activities for the three days of each camp. Lesson plans are designed to enhance the skills that students use during their academic school year. Each Summer Learning Camp session includes a unit explanation/instruction, as well as a hands-on activity.  The theme of Summer Learning Camps for 2023 is Ancient Greece!
