Porter Academy Summer Camp

Testing shows that many students lose academic skills over Summer Break. Our goal with Porter Academy Summer Camp is to prevent that from happening while providing a fun summer day camp experience.

Porter Academy Summer Camp offers integrated cross-curricular thematic units. Academics are integrated into fun activities, as well as taught in a more formal small-group setting each day. Activities integrate reading and math with science, social studies, art, social skills, and cooperative games. Students also receive occupational therapy and music therapy twice a week.

Our program is further enhanced by in-school enrichment activities provided by outside professionals such as the Art Barn, Chattahoochee Nature Center and Nature in a Nutshell.

The Program

  • Pre-kindergarten through fourth grade
  • Low student to staff ratio of 7 to 1
  • Groups of 3-5 students meet for academic enrichment classes based on their age and skill level
  • Social skills are developed through teamwork activities and practiced throughout every activity
  • Therapies and specials include occupational therapy, music therapy, physical education, and arts and crafts
  • Our integrated curriculum ensures that reading, writing, and math skills are developed in creative ways throughout both the morning and afternoon sessions

Morning Session: 9:00-12:30

  • The morning focuses on academics to maintain and build skills in reading, language arts, writing, and math.

Full Day: 9:00-3:00

  • Full Day combines both the morning and afternoon sessions to give your child both academics and specials such as art, physical education, music therapy, and occupational therapy.
