Get Ready at Camp READY!

The Learning Resource Center promotes learning in Polk County with a wide variety of programs. Camp READY! is one of the programs this summer that will help a young student be prepared for kindergarten.

As a teacher, and once a kindergartner, I know that being self-confident is an important aspect for success your first year of school. Camp READY! will prepare students through a multi-sensory summer program.
Albert Einstein said, “Learning is experiencing. Everything else is just information.” Through Camp READY!, young students will experience their learning through their eyes, their ears and their hands.
Camp READY! gives students the opportunity for success in their first year of school. Camp READY! sites include: Bartow, Fort Meade, Frostproof, Haines City, Lake Wales (two sites), Lakeland (two sites), Poinciana and Winter Haven.
