The Auburn Gresham (AG) Gold Camp is a K-3rd grade (Freedom School) academic and enrichment summer camp that implements strategic reading and math interventions to curb summer learning loss and close the achievement gap. AG-GOLD campers will discover new experiences in a safe environment giving them the freedom to explore who they really are, try new activities and create meaningful friendships. AG-Gold campers experience personal development through art, drama, sports and learning excursions that emphasize character development, merited self-esteem, and active learning. The AG Gold camp is run in partnership with Illinois State University Summer Teacher Education Partnership for Urban Preparation (STEP-UP) program. Illinois State University (ISU) teacher education students serve as STEP-UP fellows at the camp under the direction of the Lead Classroom Teacher.
