Why are LDS RISE Summer Camps the best choice for you and your child?
Our Vancouver and North Vancouver summer camp programming follows the same high standards as our tried and tested one-to-one instruction. Our Research-Informed Individualized Student Education (RISE) program focuses on drawing from collective expertise to customize a program that is right for your child, wherever they are in their learning journey. We are applying these standards within our summer camp programs, where each group will be no larger than 6-10 students (6 students in North Vancouver; up to 10 in East Vancouver).
The customized programming of our RISE & Tell and RISE & Solve summer camps will respond to the campers’ individual needs and will include key learning principles for students with suspected or diagnosed learning differences in:
- reading, processing, writing, written expression;
- computation and problem solving; and
- executive functioning / self-regulation, organizational and time management skills
Each day will include fun indoor and outdoor activities to build on the summer camp themes and encourage teamwork, personal health and safety, social skills, outdoor exploration, and games. Every student will receive focused assistance on projects taking place within the summer camp (e.g. writing tasks).
Group instruction will be provided by LDS instructors who have specific training and many years of experience in teaching and remedial education for children with learning differences. Additional supervision and guidance will be provided by other trained camp mentors who will assist with group activities. All summer camp staff have criminal record checks (or equivalent for minors who are camp mentors), training in working with vulnerable populations and all leaders and instructors have first aid training.
