Boys & Girls Club introduces new Paso Robles summer camp
Even though it’s early, it is never too early to start thinking about what your child will be doing this summer. Did you know, according to the National Summer Learning Association, most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months? Low-income students also lose more than two months in reading achievement.
The Boys & Girls Club of North San Luis Obispo County has made it a priority to stop the learning loss. This year the Boys & Girls Club of North San Luis Obispo County is implementing the Summer Brain Gain initiative as part of its Paso Robles Summer Camp.
The program will include weekly thematic modules consisting of activities that build to a final, culminating project or event.The modules are based on project-based Learning. Young people work together in groups to explore ideas, learn through fun projects, express themselves with a variety of art activities all while building their academic skills. Throughout the program, young people are building literacy, research, math, and technology skills and having fun at the same time. Modules are available at elementary and middle school levels.
Participating in a quality summer program at the Boys & Girls Club will help your child stay ready to achieve while having fun. It’s not too early to sign your child up now. Space in the club’s summer program is limited and the program is expected to fill quickly. The program is accepting students in grades K – 8.
The cost for a child to attend this program is $500 for the entire kids summer camp. The program runs Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Breakfast, lunch and two snacks are included. In addition to the Brain Gain there will be swimming, trips to the Paso Robles Children’s Museum, Charles Paddock Zoo, beach, library and other fun activities.
