What makes CAMP unique?

  • Through multi-age classes we can meet students at students’ developmental levels.

  • Holistic Approach - Freedom and Flexibility to teach to the whole child, through 3 R’s and sciences, arts, field trips, etc.

    • Arts, Sciences, Outdoor Learning, and Field trips are valued as sources of authentic learning and inspiration, and are valued as much as Language Arts and Math.

    • Teachers will use best practices in teaching literacy and math, and will provide rigorous instruction to children at their individual levels.

  • Restorative Justice practices, putting repairing harm done to relationships and people over and above the need for assigning blame and dispensing punishment.

    • No rewards/punishments for behavior

    • Building Community

  • Free Play is part of Daily Curriculum (not linked to behavior and not including recess)

    • K-2 - Average of 50 min per day

    • 3-5 - Average of 30 min per day

    • 6-8 - Average of 30 min per day
