McEnroe Summer Reading Camp

The McEnroe Reading & Language Arts Clinic at UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School will offer a 4-week summer camp for students entering grades 1-7. The program, running July 8th through August 1st, takes place Mondays-Thursdays, 9:00 am-12 pm. Registration is now open.

A team of trained staff – including credentialed teachers and graduate students from the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education – will provide language arts instruction in small-group settings, including engagement in digital literacies (multimedia stories, creating visual/audio texts, etc.), with research-based literacy curriculum.

Special programming this summer includes:

  • Reading and performing literature through Reader's Theater
  • Integrating literacy-based practices like reading and writing with MakerSpace activities
  • Experiencing other outreach centers on the UCSB campus, including the REEF.

Parents interested in helping their children maintain their hard-earned academic skills this summer can apply now. The total cost of the summer program is $400. A $25 deposit must be submitted along with the application and will apply toward the total cost of the program.
