Camp Read-A-Way is not your traditional summer camp!  Our campers are getting away for the summer, and they are doing it safely through books.  Camp Read-A-Way offers our English Language Learners “a way” (see what we did there!) to maintain literacy and reading levels.  Through our reading “camp”, we are challenging our campers to read at least 20 minutes a day and they are logging their minutes and the books they read. Scroll down to see how many books our campers have been reading!
