5.8.12 Decades of research confirms that summer learning loss is real. Summer is a time for slowing down, not shutting down. There are many things we can do for our children during the summer months. One example would be summer camps. While there are several of options available for camps, the challenge for parents is to identify a camp that keeps children engaged and is a learning experience. Interesting camps can keep students engaged so that they can go back to school in the fall ready to take on new learning challenges.
