READING AND WRITING SKILLS
Every child has a story to share and we want to hear that story. Students are guided through the process of creating a story and, as a result, become better readers and writers.
We empower the child by helping them work on one project from start to end. Campers learn how to create a story and then how to animate it. They become confident communicators and are proud of the work they create.
We empower our students to become global citizens and experience multi-cultural viewpoints. They are exposed in a meaningful way to cultural diversity and multi-culturalism. Campers build empathy and social interaction skills.

Digital Storytelling Brings a Story to Life
You can enhance a story with illustration, photos, movies, animation, narration, music and text. Digital storytelling takes a good story and makes it great.
To see youth so enthusiastic about writing interactive story books and the skills required to make the books is remarkable. This experience also afforded the students to be exposed to other parts of the world which they incorporated into their stories. This provided an interesting and creative way to inspire young students to write and tap into their desire to author books.Parent of a Digital Storytelling Camper in Washington, DC

My son recently hosted his first sleepover for many of his friends. It was perfect! I took some of the Global Sleepover ideas and the kids loved it. We did everything in a Brazilian theme – it was brilliant! As a parent, you will also have a smile on your face because of the fun!Mother of 8-year old boy, Montessori Teacher and Mobile Technology Specialist in Virgin Islands
We had a Sleepover in India theme for not one but two birthday parties for our daughter when she turned 6 and 8! The team came with decorations, a smile on their face and transported all of us to India. Our daughter and her friends are still talking about the party, years later! It was especially wonderful to see the children’s curiosity about India during the party. They were asking questions about the country, the culture – they learned something and had a lot of fun!”Diplomat at the South African Embassy, Washington, DC
