Reading with Malcolm

Read with MalcolmThis year, perhaps more than ever, that 20 to 30 percent knowledge gap known as the "Summer Slide" is real! Help your camper maintain those reading and literacy skills over the summer by signing up for READCamp. This free virtual training camp for summer reading is coached by Malcolm Mitchell, Super Bowl champion and author of "The Magician’s Hat."

READCamp provides reading training, drills and practice over the summer. Your camper can choose to read eight books — or be an MVP and read 12 books. READCamp is a natural complement and extension to summer camp. Registration is free for students who are Pre-K through 12th grade.
