Wrapping up Camp Wonder
- 2 special days planned -
More than 600 students have benefitted from Camp Wonder, the GECDSB Summer Learning Program which concludes its 3 week session on Friday.
Designed to support learning over the holidays and reduce summer learning loss, with a focus on math and literacy, the S.L.P. is in its 5th year with considerable success. The days are split into 2 parts: one for academic instruction and the remainder for recreation activities.
On Thursday, July 16th parents of this year’s campers have been invited to attend the classes. Each one will receive a bag of resources that will allow them to participate in the day’s learning with the students and to help their child with learning at home.
Friday, July 17th all the Camp Wonder participants will be attending Canadian Tire Jumpstart Day at St. Clair College from 9:45 a.m. – 1:50 p.m. All the schools involved in this year’s S.L.P. have already received a Jumpstart bag of games and sports equipment from Canadian Tire.
