Cool off and power down after camp adventures with a cursive penmanship tutorial followed by free time with classic board games!

Campers will be given individual instruction based on their penmanship ability upon entering camp. All campers will learn or improve cursive penmanship, while also improving fine motor skills, writing speed, and reading retention- all in an engaging, log cabin classroom overlooking the valley! Other benefits of learning and strengthening cursive penmanship are increased self-discipline, legibility and spelling ability, as well as a higher quality signature. Power to the paper!

Campers will take breaks from working in cursive, but continue to make neural connections by enjoying and learning how to play classic board games like checkers, chess, scrabble, backgammon, Battleship, dominoes, Stratego, and more!
