LIFE AT CAMP
Campers are engaged in various activities all day at Englishton Park. They are rewarded based on improvements made day-to-day, like focusing on the teacher and actively participating. Each activity gives the children an opportunity to learn about subjects they struggle with in school and be active while they do it.
Every camp activity is combined with a lesson that is taught in school. An academic lesson is taught and then reinforced during a fun camp activity. Results have shown that this system of teaching is more beneficial as the children seem to react negatively toward classroom learning. It has shown that rewarding children for doing what they are asked or for doing well improves their perception of in-class learning.
Apart from the group activities, teacher/tutor therapists keep written records on every single child to focus on what they need to work on the most. The curriculum created here is also used for 1-on-1 tutoring during the day in specific areas for each camper. This way, children learn how to work both individually and in groups and grow enthusiasm around classroom learning.
