Day after day, month after month and year after year, we witness the difference that Dream Camp makes. Our students show improved math and reading skills and overall improved academic performance. They have fewer behavioral infractions as a result of their participation in Dream Camp. They make better choices by tapping into the critical thinking and decision making skills they learn at Dream Camp. At Dream Camp, we prepare our students to think about their futures, to demonstrate leadership skills and to develop plans to achieve their goals.
