Parkland College Community Education is adding a new camp designed specifically for students with dyslexia to its summer lineup.

Camp Monarch: Evolving with Dyslexia helps students ages 7-14 gain confidence in reading, math, and writing through individualized tutoring using multisensory and Orton-Gillingham-based teaching methods. Small group activities will encourage students to build friendships with peers who have similar learning styles.

The camp will run for two sessions: June 20-30 and July 11-21, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Parkland College; both sessions are recommended to get the most benefit from the camp. The camp is open to students with an individualized education program (IEP) or 504 plan, are in a reading intervention program, or who struggle with reading. Documentation is required upon enrollment. Scholarships are available for students with financial need or who would benefit academically from the camp.

Register at parkland.edu/ceRegister and browse by category Youth and College for Kids. Search for Camp Monarch. Camp Monarch is not a part of College for Kids, but runs simultaneously. Supervised lunch periods are provided for students who also attend College for Kids.
