The Early Language and Literacy Initiative (ELLI) is a high-quality, year-round interdisciplinary approach to early childhood education designed to improve school readiness and close the achievement gap. ELLI provides essential language and literacy-rich educational experiences for young children that are based on theory, research, and community wisdom about what children need to learn and grow up successfully. Camp ELLI at Stepping Stones is an accelerated summer program that focuses on these principles.

Fun Learning Experience

Play and learning go hand-in-hand this summer at Camp ELLI, a high-quality learning  experience. Each day is action-packed with fun, hands-on activities that infuse science, technology, engineering and math (STEAM) and foster early language and literacy development. Playful learning experiences enhance a child’s social and academic achievement, and can prevent learning loss from occurring during the summer months.

All Camp Guides are trained in the ELLI approach to ensure your child’s experiences are individualized for their unique learning level. Morning snacks and lunch are provided for free. Extended care option is available for a fee.
