What is Straight Street Camp?
Straight Street camp is a two-week camp designed for children who have completed Kindergarten through fifth grades who would benefit from enriching experiences in the areas of academic, physical, spiritual and social-emotional learning. The goal of the program is to help prevent summer learning loss and enrich children with skills and experiences that make them better students and enhance their wellbeing.
2020 Registration Coming Soon.
What to expect
Academic curriculum is taught by professional educators with hands-on engaging methods that kids will love.
Social-emotional learning increases children’s abilities in the areas of communication, cooperation, problem solving, and conflict resolution.
Physical education is a major component of SSC. We believe kids need to move, and learning is done best when they are active.
Biblical teaching is incorporated into each day with a message about God’s special love for children and practical ways they can make him a part of their lives.
Our goal is to make a strong positive impact in each campers’ summer and develop lasting relationships that lead towards a brighter future through:
Employing skilled teachers with proven records in teaching struggling learners.
Connecting volunteers who are passionate about children’s wellbeing with campers who need extra support.
Enlisting community members to provide lessons in their areas of expertise such as personal finance, art, natural science, and martial arts.
We aim to help campers increase their school readiness by providing engaging lessons in the areas of science, math, social studies, and reading that address typical areas of difficulty in the Georgia core curriculum. We also develop interpersonal skills critical to success and wellbeing at school by building confidence, creating vehicles for self-expression, and teaching direct lessons in handling bullying, conflict resolution, and communication. We also work to help campers develop or strengthen their personal relationship with Jesus, as we are a Christ-centered organization and we believe all peoples’ lives are improved by personal relationship with Him.
