Summer Camp Plus KinderCamp

Harker’s KinderCamp introduces a classroom routine that prepares children for a successful transition into kindergarten.

KinderCamp

KinderCamp is specially designed to prepare children for entering school in the fall. Mornings are filled with readiness lessons in math and language arts. Children are engaged in school-day routines, small group instruction, hands-on centers and activities to further develop fine motor and social skills.

Children must be proficient in English and be 5 years old by Dec. 1, 2018.

Weekly folders are sent home with newsletters and student work. No homework, grades or report cards are issued.
