You've Got the Write One

Summer Enrichment Camp

You've Got the Write One

"You’ve Got the Write One" is an interdisciplinary summer enrichment program held on the UofL Belknap Campus on July 24-28, 2023. The camp teaching staff is comprised of practicing teachers and pre-service teachers enrolled at the University of Louisville. To prepare the teaching staff to work within an integrated environment, a team of teacher leaders meets for two months prior to the camp to develop activities that will introduce participants to the camp theme, content and expectations.

Three days prior to the camp the teaching staff meet to participate in activities designed by the leaders and to develop specific curriculum for their classes. During the one-week camp, students entering grades 4-8 work with their teaching team to explore topics and enrichment-based learning activities centered on the camp’s theme. The 2023 theme is “Dreams.” At the end of the week, students showcase their work for parents and other interested adults at an open house.

The first Summer Enrichment Camp (previously known as the Summer Portfolio Institute) was held in 1995 and has continued to grow with each passing year. The Summer Enrichment Camp is currently under the direction of Dr. Caroline Sheffield and Ms. Amanda Lacey in the Department of Elementary, Middle, and Secondary Teacher Education.

Campers will meet daily from 9:00 am until 2:45 pm in the Porter Building on the UofL Belknap Campus. We ask that you provide PROMPT morning and afternoon transportation and a sack lunch.
