About MTR Camp

Founded in 2013, MTRCamp is a literacy-based summer camp experience aimed at (1) inspiring undergraduate students to pursue careers in literacy education within public schools in Memphis, (2) empowering campers with individualized reading intervention and opportunities that will support their ongoing language and literacy development, and (3) equipping preservice and inservice teachers with meaningful learning opportunities in research-based literacy practices. The program is designed to provide academic enrichment within a summer camp experience for students who attend MTR partner schools while exposing Literacy Fellows to education in Memphis and the residency program. Additionally, Fellows live in community with one another, explore Memphis and receive training in research-based literacy practices and effective instructional techniques.
