Camp D.I.G. is designed to the meet the unique needs of the dyslexic learner. Our aim is to instill confidence, improve reading and spelling skills, enhance working memory and processing speed, and allow students to be part of a larger community of children experiencing similar struggles. We will provide the much needed direct instruction that will bring about gains in the student's reading and spelling. We will offer opportunities for campers to do hard things and be successful.
Dyslexia is a gift. These learners are smart, good problem solvers, creative thinkers who have so much to offer the world. The struggle to read and spell can lead to frustration and defeat! We want to change that at Camp D.I.G. We want to help them embrace the gifts they have and develop them. We want to help them realize that the struggle will only make them stronger. Camp D.I.G. is a place of encouragement and empowerment!
