Please check back in during the coming weeks for updates on whether LOFL will run its traditional in-person summer camp or a variety of other options like last summer.
Stay safe and well!
For the summer of 2020, LOFL camp will not be running its traditional camp due to safety concerns. In place of camp, LOFL will be offering virtual tutoring (1:1 and small group) for children who are rising K through rising 6th grade. If you are interested in being matched with a tutor, please email the following information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Your child’s name and grade they are entering in Sept 2020
- Are you interested in one-on-one or small group tutoring?
- Which academic areas would you like the tutor to focus on (i.e. phonemic awareness, letter/sound correspondence, handwriting, reading fluency, comprehension, study skills. etc)
- The length of time you would like your child to be tutored (i.e. 45 minutes, 60 minutes)
- Are you interested in only virtual sessions or open to in-person sessions (in following the state’s guidelines) should that become a summer option?
- When would you like to begin sessions? How many weeks are you interested in?
We will contact you within a few days of receiving your tutoring requests to help set you up with a tutor that best meets your child’s needs.

Our camp curriculum is designed to be hands-on, interactive, play-based and fun! You can expect your child to be engaged in early literacy activities involving songs, sensory exploration, creative arts, STEM, children’s books, storytelling, dramatic play, and fine and gross motor skills.
Each day begins with the students ‘signing in’ to practice writing their name. This is followed by table activities aimed at developing the small muscles necessary for writing. At morning circle, we practice sounds and letters through interactive songs, games, stories, and rhymes. At snack time our program exposes campers to our favorite children’s books as they learn about concepts of print. During recess, children are free to run around the playground, strengthening the large muscle groups that support the smaller ones involved in writing! We end the day with small group learning and a creative book-based art project that gets children excited about books, reading, and learning!
Our early literacy camp program values YOU and your role in your child’s literacy development. Parents will receive a brief daily report of the activities and skills learned, as well as ways to strengthen these same skills at home.
