SUMMER LEARNING ADVENTURES:
Our spin on Summer Camps are uniquely designed with your child’s passions and interests in mind.
We offer both full and half day options to meet the needs of all families. Students staying for both morning and afternoon sessions participate in a 30-minute supervised lunch at no additional cost. Students will need to bring their own snacks and lunches please; we are a nut-free facility.
Full payment is due at registration, and the price includes all materials. We also offer a 10% sibling discount.
Need more time at camp? Power Up My Day for an additional $20 (per day) for morning drop off at 7:30 am and afternoon pick up at 5:30 pm.
ACADEMIC BOOSTER FOR STUDENTS WITH DYSLEXIA
Summer Learning Loss Can Be Detrimental to Kids Who Struggle With Dyslexia
Summer is the time for fun and relaxation. However, for students who struggle with dyslexia it is also a great opportunity to gain academic skills without the daily pressures of school work.
Our summer Orton-Gillingham Academic Booster for Students with Dyslexia will build upon the momentum gained during the school year! This 5-week camp is held daily from 8:00-11:30 starting June 17 through July 19, 2019. (July 4, 2019 is a Thursday.) eXL learning will be closed on Thursday, July 4 for the holiday no camp on this day.
Daily activities include:
-one hour of 1:1 reading and writing tutoring session
-45 minutes of guided reading for fluency, accuracy and comprehension
-45 minutes of cursive handwriting and/or keyboarding
-one hour of fun hands-on learning for math fluency, games and arts.
Highly qualified and Orton-Gillingham trained teachers will monitor their progress throughout the five week camp and provide written evaluation results with academic recommendations and observations to parents. Our teachers use the Orton-Gillingham approach with kids to boost their current levels of functioning in all academics.
Students are given pre and post tests designed specifically for this camp in order to guide instructional planning.
Total cost of 5 week camp is $3,360. ($1,680 at registration and $1,680 by June 15, 2019).
For campers who wish to participate in full day learning activities, we offer a 30 minute supervised lunch at no additional cost, and 50% off afternoon Learning Adventure sessions from 12:00-3:30 and 50% off Power-up-my-Day.

“My son is a 7-year old, newly-diagnosed with Dyslexia but the school was saying “speech and language impairment.” He was a DRA level 3 at the end of 1st grade, and his self esteem was incredibly poor.
He loved his time at eXL and by the end of this past summer, he was reading at a DRA level 10 and his penmanship was much improved over that time. He was lucky to get the same teacher for 2nd grade this year, and she was so impressed with his progress. He’s now at a DRA 16 and continues to make small improvements using the skills he learned this summer. He is able to participate in classroom activities now without fear of not being able to keep up, and that is resulting in much better behavior in addition to better test scores.
I think what he enjoyed most was Reader’s Theater. Fortunately I worked nearby, so I was able to see both performances. The kids read from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory at the performance and they were all so proud when they read their parts perfectly. Really made reading enjoyable for them.”
