Summer Camps Offered by West Coast Centre for Learning 

Brain Booster Camp

Summer arrives, and often, learning takes a break, particularly for those students who need it the most. Academic progress achieved during the school year might fade away, setting students back as they return in the fall. This summer slide affects not just the students but also educators, who spend the initial weeks revisiting previously covered material. West Coast Centre for Learning and the Fast ForWord at-home reading program are here to offer a solution, ensuring your child's learning continues, blending fun with educational growth with our Summer Learning Camps for Kids. These camps help prepare your child for the fall ensuring they get the learning boost they need, and maintain their competitive edge when school begins in September.


Academic Improvement

Summer is a crucial time to keep the momentum of learning alive, especially for students who benefit the most from continuous educational engagement. The transition from structured school days to the relaxed pace of summer often leads to the "summer slide," where academic achievements start to decrease, potentially setting students back as they re-enter school in the fall. Recognizing this challenge, we offer our Online Reading Improvement Camp, an innovative solution designed to counteract this educational backslide. These camps are focused on improving key cognitive skills, such as memory, attention, and problem-solving, through an online platform. They offer flexible participation, allowing children to engage in brain-boosting activities remotely while still receiving personalized attention and guidance.
