Our thanks to St. Clair Catholic Summer Learning Camp for sharing resources (see sample parent calendar and dayplan) and the description below, all related to their commitment to engaging parents of their SLP students. If your program would like to contribute summer learning stories and/or resources, contact us here.
“At St. Clair Catholic Summer Learning Camp we believe parent engagement is an integral part of our camp. We invite parents to join us for part of our morning block to see their camper’s learning in action or for our afternoon adventures. This helps parents know what is happening at camp, ask better questions at home about their child’s day and builds a positive relationship between home and school. Due to COVID restrictions, parents were only able to drop students off at school. Visiting camp allows them to have a window into their child’s world and reconnect as part of the school family. We are using a multi-faceted approach to engagement- face to face, student displays at camp, social media (Twitter) and our website to build connections with families.”
