Attending Rocky Mountain Camp was extremely beneficial for our son. The academic part and one-on one tutoring were amazing as were all the outdoor camp activities. After five weeks, our son left RMC with a deep sense of pride in his reading ability and a sense of community with the other campers, who like him, have dyslexia. A HUGE Thank You to all the staff for making our first summer at RMC a memorable one! We'll definitely be back next summer.

The Rocky Mountain Camp (RMC) for dyslexic kids, provides an intensive 5-week language immersion program for diagnosed dyslexic youngsters ages 7-13. RMC’s highly individualized academic program provides an hour daily of the following:
One-on-one Orton-Gillingham tutoring, individualized study hall, composition, and fluency reading. This immersion program builds a strong language foundation which allows students greater success when they return to their normal academic environment. Many of these youngsters will progress through several grade levels in their language skills during the 5-week summer session.
Rocky Mountain Camp also provides a variety of outdoor adventures designed to help develop creativity, enhance self-esteem, foster individual strengths, and generate enthusiasm. Confidence gained through successful participation in these pursuits often translates into a more positive attitude which can last long after campers leave Rocky Mountain Camp.
Rocky Mountain Camp is located at St. Anne's In-the-Hill Outdoor Education facility in Indian Hills, 25 minutes from downtown Denver. It is graced by a charming log house and chapel, dating from the early 1900's, a more modern building providing ample space for tutoring rooms, meeting rooms, performing theater, big outdoor fire ring, acres of mature pine forest, and a seasonal creek.
