It’s important for administrators and educators to help young students and their families stay connected to reading, learning and creative experiences throughout the summer. That’s why McClintock Miller has created the 12-week Virtual Camp Adventure program for her district—and it goes beyond books.

Each week, starting May 25, there will be a new choice board that includes e-books, research, arts and crafts, STEAM activities, virtual field trips, and more for students to access online. And to engage every learner, weekly themes will range from sports to space. McClintock Miller offers resources and tips on how to prepare a similar program for any school district. Click here to read more.
