In addition to educational curriculum which engages students in topics from poetry, to theater, to health and wellness, every week of camp ends with an exposure field trip to organizations across the state.

LEADERS OF TOMORROW - WILLOW SCHOOL
A Grade Level Reading Specialist is placed in Willow Elementary School and supports teachers by focusing on reading intervention and building reading skills for grades K-3. Teachers recommend students who could use more attention in reading and our Grade Level Reading Specialist assists these children to ensure they don’t fall behind the reading curve and are ready to continue onto fourth grade.
SMARTY’S AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
The SmartY’S (Smart, Young, Significant) Program is a critical out-of-school program that is designed to establish a community learning center to increase academic performance of participating youth in order to keep them on the path to graduation and a successful future. Youth receive daily homework help and tutoring in the core subjects of reading and math. Youth are also offered a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academics such as arts, music, science, technology, recreation, service learning projects, and drug and alcohol prevention activities.
