One of Camp Pillsbury’s main goals is to inspire and motivate campers, and provide tools and opportunities for success. Our Summer Camp Tutoring Program has the ability to increase academic, leadership, communication, and other essential skills in our campers and students.
For those campers who wish to take advantage of our tutoring program, Camp Pillsbury offers personalized tutoring in math, reading comprehension, and English as a second language (ESL). Our staff includes certified teachers and college education majors who provide one-hour sessions. Parents who enroll their campers for tutoring are asked to communicate the areas the children need improvement. Staff tutors work with each camper to tackle these focus areas and prepare for the next school year.
Tutoring sessions integrate seamlessly with the Camp Pillsbury schedule. Each camper attends 6 activities daily. Those who choose to participate in tutoring spend one of these periods working with our tutors. Personalized tutoring is not included in base tuition and is available as an optional add-on during registration.
Summer Camp Tutoring Program Subjects
Math tutors will develop an individualized plan to meet the exact learning needs of your camper. Whether it’s extra algebra help or additional coursework to strengthen a skill set, we’ll develop the skills, habits and attitudes your child needs for success in school and beyond.
Reading comprehension is your child’s ability to read words and associate them with proper meaning. Although the focus of the activities is on reading, the improvement of writing is an equally important goal. Each summer, our staff work with campers to build their reading comprehension skills necessary to understand, recall and share information about something read.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
This program is open to campers who want to learn and improve their English skills. All levels of English proficiency are welcome. TOEFL test scores are not required.
