Camp READY! 2017 Serves 354 Kindergartners

Serving Young Learners In Polk

Nine county-wide campsites were vibrant learning environments for a record number of rising or struggling kindergartners. Camp READY! 2017 took place at sites in Frostproof, Fort Meade, Lake Wales, Bartow, Haines City, Lakeland and Winter Haven throughout June and July. This successful four-week camp helped to prepare rising and repeating kindergartners for academic success this coming school year.

Campers demonstrated learning gains averaging four to five months with some scores indicating one year or more of growth in expressive or receptive vocabulary, huge increases for five year-old children. Other successes were demonstrated in listening, attending and focusing, following directions, and social skills.
 
Eight camps were underwritten with United Way monies, and one camp was funded by a Givewell Community Foundation donor.

Camp READY! Staff is Prepped and Ready to Teach!

Seventy enthusiastic participants who will serve Camp READY! campers congregated at two different sites on Saturday, May 21. Come June and July, these folks will be in positions of camp site director, instructor, counselor or support staff. Camp READY! is LRC’s signature program for beginning or struggling kindergartners geared towards preparing them for success in the classroom.
 
During the two and a half hour training, attendees met with their camp colleagues to get acquainted and to assign roles for the upcoming four-week sessions at ten different sites across Polk County. Breakout workshops provided time and attention for practice with the curriculum for each site’s learning centers—Readiness, Cooking, Movement, and Art. This year will be the inaugural year for incorporation of Nemours’ Bright Start Program, an acclaimed pre-kindergarten language development initiative from the Nemours’ Pediatric Hospitals.
