A Summer Academic Intervention
1/2 Day Summer Camp, 2019

Presented by
The Blosser Center for Dyslexia Resources

As of now this camp is full.  Due to the high demand of this program, we are working to increase our staffing and enrollment.  Please check back.

The camp is open to students entering the first grade up to entering the seventh grade. This will be our fifteenth year! We anticipate having room for 20 students. We will be offering individual Orton-Gillingham tutoring, along with small group expository writing and math.

We will meet 9 AM to 12:30 PM, Monday through Friday, July 1 through 30, 2019; we will be closed July 4 and 5.

Tuition for Summer Camp, including O-G tutoring (reading, spelling and handwriting), expository writing, and math is $2400.00

A reading and spelling assessment is required for enrollment, to help familiarize our staff with your child’s current skills and abilities. This skills testing is included with camp tuition – there is no extra charge for the skills assessment for Summer Camp.

We will contact you to schedule an appointment in May or June.  Assessment time is about 30 to 40 minutes.  Your deposit will be refunded if the Blosser Center determines that the student would not benefit from the program.

No professional academic and cognitive testing for learning disabilities is required for Summer Camp.  However, if parents plan or suspect they will want to continue tutoring after the Camp and into the school year, The Blosser Center requires that complete testing be done and the results reviewed by our Clinical Director.  A list of recommended testers can be found on this website under the Resources menu item.

<Summer Camp is currently full; we are not taking additional applications right now. Call The Blosser Center, (503) 234-4060, to find out about waiting list status.>

Thank you for your interest in REV UP YOUR READING. We look forward to working with your student.

Rev Up Your Reading XIV Summer Camp 2018

Fun at Summer Camp CroppedHaving fun at Summer Camp!

Summer Camp 2018 was better than we could have imagined! We served 24 students, all of whom made gains. Every day we started with music and motion to wake everyone up and get them fully alert for a productive session. With a 70 minute session, tutors had plenty of time to work with their students on penmanship, reading and comprehension.

Week one, on July 3rd, we had “Red, White, and Blue Day” in which all kids participated! Friday of week two we celebrated “Tie Dye Friday.” Boy, was that colorful! Week three was “Hawaiian Friday,” complete with leis, grass skirts and popcorn for our snack. Because the students got so many Golden Tickets we had our annual ice cream celebration on the last Friday, July 27th, complete with a disco ball and a student master of ceremonies who interviewed all the kids.

In writing class they learned parts of speech, how to embellish a basic sentence and how to write a five sentence paragraph. For the older students they then turned their basic paragraph into a five paragraph essay. The kids were engaged and enthusiastic every day. Someone said they thought it was the best summer camp ever!
