    Camp Dunnabeck is Kildonan's summer program for children ages 8 to 16. Established in 1955, Dunnabeck is the oldest residential program of its kind - founded specifically to help intelligent children with dyslexia or language based learning differences achieve academic success.

    The Dunnabeck program balances dedicated language remediation with outstanding recreational activities. We pair every camper with an Orton Gillingham tutor for a one-to-one, one hour Language Training session every day. Each camper completes tutoring-based assignments in study hall, the length of which varies based on the child's age. When they're not studying, campers can choose from among a wide array of fun activities and weekend excursions, which tap into the natural resources of the campus and the region.

    When campers return to school in the fall, they discover that they're rested, relaxed, and ready for success.
