Summer Learning Loss Programs
According to the Y, many children lose up to two months of math and reading skills over the summer months. Help combat that brain dump by signing you child up for The Y’s Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program, a course that helps elementary school students reading below grade level. Students focus on phonics, writing, and reading to boost literacy skills, as well as physical and social emotional growth.
Nationwide, 1.4 million youth and adults attend Y camps, including 970,000 kids and adults through summer day and overnight camp programs. At these camps, kids and teenagers enjoy new and fun activities that boost character development and build new and lasting friendships.
