Summer Camp 2022 - Helping Children Bridge the Learning Gap

This is Kuei Luck Summer Camp’s 21st season and we are excited to announce that we will be returning to St. Johns University.

This summer we are not only helping students catch up on their learning loss but helping them socially and emotionally. Our in-person program will provide children the opportunity to catch up and prepare for the next school year all while ensuring that children still have a memorable camp experience.

Our camp will provide children going into grades Kindergarten to 8th grade an opportunity to advance academically and socially during their summer break. Our licensed teachers will work with students to ensure that they continue their studies and their academic rigor. A placement test will be utilized to help determine students’ academic abilities to make certain that our students with like abilities are grouped together and learn at the same pace.

OUR VALUES

Our day camp’s core goal is preparing youth for the upcoming school year, we also focus on building soft skills that are crucial to youth development and future success. We emphasize the following core values: confidence, community, camaraderie, grit, and respect.

MORNINGS – Helping Students Bridge the Pandemic Learning Gap

The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a lasting effect on children’s development. An entire school year of virtual learning and modified classroom learning has resulted in academic and developmental delays. Our in-person, small class size, homogenized classes are taught by NYS Licensed teachers.

Campers take a placement test prior to the start of camp to ensure that they are placed, not only in a pod with their grade, but also with children with like academic abilities.

Homework is assigned Monday – Thursday. We encourage children to complete their assignments but do not require it to be completed.

AFTERNOONS – Socialization, Teamwork, Just plain old fun.

During the afternoons, our campers will participate in a variety of camp activities. Their weekly assigned activities will be conducted with their morning pods. This is done in order to comply with CDC and Department of Health guidelines.

FRIDAYS – Just a little bit different

Fridays are special at Kuei Luck. Campers start the day with morning assessments, which allow teachers to see how much of the material they have retained from the week. For the rest of the day, children enjoy various planned activities as a class. These activities vary every Friday and expose campers to experiences they may not have chosen for themselves during the week. We believe summer camp is a perfect time for children to get out of their comfort zone and try new activities—they often end up having a blast.

We know in the past that we have allowed children to pick their own activities however we must continue pods to minimize the possibility of COVID exposure.

ENDEMIC MANAGEMENT – KEEPING CAMPERS SAFE

Over the past two years, Kuei Luck has learned how to keep children safe in a post COVID-19 world.
