Summer Adventures in Learning! (SAIL)

Children regress when they don’t practice their academic skills over the summer. This is known as summer learning loss, or the summer slide. Children from low-income families lose two-three months of grade equivalency. Thanks to wonderful partnerships throughout East Alabama, we are excited to introduce our community’s own Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL) program, as a dynamic component of the City of Anniston's Summer Day Camps this year! Designed for students entering 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades in August 2024, this SAIL program welcomes participants from the City of Anniston’s Summer Camp Programs at Wiggins, Carver, and Hodges Community Centers, along with students residing in Calhoun County. This program primarily focuses on students not meeting grade level standards. Daily attendance is mandatory to participate in this SAIL program. The classroom components of the SAIL program will be hosted at The Donoho School. SAIL students will be required to participate in both the Summer Day Camp Program and the SAIL program, and they’ll be offered transportation from their respective Summer Camp locations to The Donoho School for 3.5 hours of daily instruction featuring innovative reading and math sessions rooted in the BellXcel curriculum, led by certified local educators. After breaks for lunch, city transportation will take Summer Day Camp students back to their respective community centers. On Fridays, SAIL students will be transported to Camp Lee for unique outdoor enrichment adventures, and return them to their centers afterwards! Registration kicks off at designated community centers from May 7th to 9th. All students who register for the SAIL program will be required to take a pre-test prior to final enrollment into the program. This program will start June 3rd and run until August 2nd, excluding July 1-5 and June 19th.
