What Is Boot Camp?

Reading Basics Boot Camp is a time of fun, but intense, multi-sensory instruction in skills that are foundational to reading success. Particular emphasis is placed on building phonemic awareness and teaching letter/sound relationships to automaticity. Camp sessions will be led by Orton-Gillingham trained instructors.
