Hawaii Learning Resource offers summer academic enrichment camps in Waimea

Hawaii Learning Resource is now accepting applications for their Summer Academic Enrichment Camp, Spy Camp, targeting diverse learners entering grades 2 to 5 in the upcoming school year. The two-week day camps focus on building on student’s learning skills in a fun, hands-on environment with an emphasis on observation, focus, and listening. Parents of camp students will be provided with a better understanding of their child’s learning strengths and challenges and receive strategies and resources to help in school and at home.

Hawaii Learning Resource’s Summer Academic Enrichment Camps, developed in collaboration with Assets School, will be held at Kanu o ka Aina New Century Public Charter School in Waimea. The camps are taught by local educators trained by Assets School master teachers. Assets School is a private school located in Honolulu for dyslexic and/or gifted students. Grant funding to support the summer camps has been provided by the G.N. Wilcox Trust, Hawaii Community Foundation FLEX Grant, and private donors.
