Program and Philosophy

Camp K offers an exciting summer literacy program for children

entering Pre-Kindergarten through second grade. Our two week

summer literacy program immerses children in an enriching and

fun literacy environment. Camp K is held at St. Matthew's Church

in Pennington, NJ, and is run by highly trained and experienced

literacy teachers. No matter the level of your child’s reading, our

promise is to get to know your child and build a literacy program 

that allows him/her to feel success while continuing forward on

the literacy learning journey.

Children are provided with rich literacy experiences that include, drama, art, reading, and writing. We encourage you to sign up for all three consecutive weeks, yet will permit registration for individual weeks. 

  • Camp K builds on the strengths of students via small group, individualized instruction that is developed by a reading specialist and designed to fit each child’s needs.
  • For beginning readers, sessions address literacy skills that are foundational to learning to read and write and are centered around a fun weekly theme.
  • For children who are already reading, opportunities for enrichment activities are geared towards building reading fluency, reading comprehension, and writing skill.

Camp K is a unique experience for your child. A safe environment, in beautiful classrooms located in the heart of Pennington, New Jersey. A curriculum created by highly trained literacy specialists and taught by those same teachers - this makes us stand out from the crowd. 

Start the summer off right and join us at Camp K!




To all our Camp K Families,

My passions in life are my family, the outdoors, and literacy curriculum.  I adore creating it, teaching it, and watching children fall in love with literacy. I am sad to say that we will not be hosting Camp K this summer. We have grown out of the space at St. Matthews due to the age range of students we now offer to attend Camp. We hope to have better news next summer. I want to say thank you for supporting this camp in our community and for all of your confidence in trusting us with your children.

In the meantime - if you are interested in small group tutoring or individual tutoring please reach out to us at 

All my best,

Casey Upson
