2020 Summer Book Camp

Light and Salt Academy has begun the summer with its annual book camp ... virtually!

In light of the recent health crisis, Light and Salt Academy is now completely online. Teachers and volunteers have worked to make virtual learning as easy and engaging as possible. After months of preparation, Light and Salt Academy has converted the entire summer book camp curriculum to 1-on-1 tutoring. The students are expected to read the assigned novels and complete their workbooks over the 10-week period.
