Avoid Summer Brain Drain

There is a growing concern among K-12 educators about the effects of “summer learning loss,” or “summer slide”—terms that refer to students’ decline in academic ability during summer months when they are away from school. Research shows that during the summer vacation, students lose “too much of what they learned during the school year” and “typically score lower on standardized tests after the summer break than they did before it.”

Summer Reading Camp is a dynamic summer reading program in Gloucester, Massachusetts for students K-5th grade. While having fun reading, doing crafts and having adventures, campers dramatically improve their reading and gain confidence in their ability to learn.
