Description:  

Stay sharp and keep it fresh this summer at Lincoln School’s Learning Workshop for Girls! At Lincoln, we put girls first, and that doesn’t stop when the school year is over. This camp reinforces the skills needed for academic and lifelong success in a fun, hands-on way. Each week, the girls will work on math, reading, and writing, but there won’t be any of the typical worksheets or pop quizzes. Girls will have the opportunity to go on a math scavenger hunt, design their own zoo, write and illustrate their own story, and play tons of games! At the end of each week, campers will take home a set of games that they can play at home to help keep their skills tuned until the school year starts up again. Kristin Raia will run this program, she is a teacher at Lincoln School, has over 10 years of experience and loves to make learning fun.
