The Durango Mountain Camp
DMC provides intensive one-on-one Orton-Gillingham based language training for professionally diagnosed dyslexic youngsters ages 11-16 (day campers 6-13). DMC’s highly personalized academic program builds a strong language foundation which allows students greater success when they return home 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. Durango Mountain Camp also provides an outstanding summer experience through an exciting selection of uncommon outdoor pursuits. These challenging activities help develop creativity, enhance self-esteem, foster individual strengths and generate a great deal of enthusiasm. Greater self-confidence, gained through successful participation in these outdoor pursuits, often translates to a more positive attitude which can last long after campers leave Durango Mountain Camp.
