English Adventures Camp

Overview

LINX Camps has taken learning the common core and MA Frameworks to new heights... of FUN! English Adventures Camp includes three academic periods, a lunch period, swim lessons (including Red Cross Certified swim instruction) including free swim four times a week, and a bonus camp activity period. The outdoors serve as our "classroom" as campers tackle the subject matter to set them up for success in the year ahead. Through explicit and organic vocabulary acquisition, campers grow their academic and functional language skills. So get ready to run, jump and race your way to an A+ this summer at English Adventures Camp!

Sample Activity The Pony Express

Set-up: One team of 6 on one side of the playing field and one team of 6 on the other side. Each team has one Hippity Hop and a satchel.

Rules:

On the “GO” command, campers ride their hippity Hop to the far end of the field, open one piece of mail to reveal a word. They ride back and tag in the next camper in line who retrieves the next piece of mail. Each camper must place their piece of mail in the correct mailbox (preposition, verb, adjective, etc.).

How to win:

The team that retrieves and correctly places their 10 pieces of mail wins!

Challenge Time:

At the end of the game, before heading off to the next activity, each camper is handed an iPad and answers the same six questions they just played in the game. Scores are collected and parents notified of results.

Lesson:

Its that easy! Campers have fun and learn best while playing! So get ready to run, sweat and learn this summer at LINX Quest!
