Many at-risk students lack an educationally supportive environment over the summer and return to school with diminished skill (summer slide). Camp Achieve aims to address this by offering high-quality, research-based summer instruction. Two models are offered this summer: the 80 hour in a consecutive 4-week program and a new model featuring 54 hours of instruction- 9 days of face-to-face paired with an all summer online component.
