So Dive into Literacy!

Medieval Times: Dragons, Damsels, and Heroes
Damsels in distress, dragons and heroes are wild with adventure as they combine to make for a fun and exciting literacy theme-based camp.  Books read are based on this time period  with an emphasis on building literacy skills in reading and writing while combining them with the arts for a true humanities camp.  Enjoy a medieval dinner, real games from King Arthur's time and other surprise adventures during the last day of camp.
Folktales, Fantasy, and Mythology
Explore the folklore in your own backyard through oral and written history.  Undertake an adventure into the fantasy and mythological realms by reading stories and engaging in interactive literacy activities that bring the make-believe alive in your imagination.  Books about folklore, fairy tales, tall tales, fantasy and mythology are used in differentiated reading groups.
 
Pirates and Seafaring Adventures
Search the high seas for stories of scallywags and cutthroats and learn about pirate lore.  Books about pirates are utilized with strong background information about pirates to debunk myths while creating an environment rich for storytelling.  Activities include scavenger hunts for pirate treasure and pirate loot galore in combination with readers' theatre.
