K-11 Summer Program

Woodlynde School's four-week Summer Program is open to both current Woodlynde students and students from area public and private schools entering grades K-11. Our theme of Adventures in the Far East comes to life as students are divided into age-appropriate groups for both the morning academic program and afternoon day camp.  Students may participate in just the morning academic program or both the morning academic program and afternoon day camp. All programs feature small group instruction from our highly trained and experienced teachers. 

Lower School Programs (for students entering grades K-5) Monday-Friday

Mathematics & Problem-Solving Skills
The Lower School Mathematics Summer Program makes math meaningful and fun by using a variety of multi-sensory activities, including Digi-Blocks, Fraction Factory, and graphic organizers.
 
Reading, Writing, Computer, and Study Skills
Using the Wilson® Reading Program, Read Naturally®, and The Strategic Reading Program, students build decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills. They will also build an organized approach to writing based on frameworks developed at The Landmark School as well as specific instruction in study skills.
 
Adventure Day Camp
Our head counselors bring each summer's theme to life with a range of recreational activities including swimming, arts, crafts, drama, imaginative play, field trips, sports, and games. Each week of Adventure Day Camp will have a different focus. Students go on field trips every Friday.

Please note: 2nd & 3rd grade classes are full.
