Early Childhood Literacy

Camp Literacy Live

Camp Literacy Live is one of Oldham County Schools’ programs designed to prevent summer learning loss and help get students at or above grade level before the start of the school year. Located at La Grange Elementary, Camp Literacy Live is designed for kindergarteners ready to enter first grade. Using intensive literacy intervention and low teacher/student ratio, Camp Literacy Live’s morning sessions include individual and small group instruction, and afternoon sessions provide hands-on science activities with the Kentucky Science Center. Oldham County Educational Foundation and Metro United Way help make this critical learning camp possible.

“I would like to thank you all for giving my son the opportunity to participate in this program. He was struggling with phonics and sounds. He has greatly improved over these four weeks. You have given him confidence.”

“My son was able to retain what he struggled to learn in kindergarten and then build upon it.”
