Camp Fun Brain practices the balanced literacy model of reading instruction, hitting on all five components each day: fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, phonemic awareness, and phonics. Each instructional block begins with a high quality read aloud followed by enrichment activities to reinforce comprehension skills. Every camper will have one on one time with their reading teacher each day to receive individualized instruction as well as encouragement in his or her identity as a reader.

Parents are welcome to provide reading levels from school so that targeted instruction begins day one. Otherwise, staff can easily gauge reading level on day one.
