New Visions was transformed into a literacy campground during its first Family Literacy Camp Out/Parent University, where "campers" and their families rotated through bilingual literacy stations such as Camp Scavenger Hunts, First Aid Clinic, Camp Build a Word, and "Mess Hall," where attendees followed recipes with the PTA to make smores, trail mix and fishing pretzel rods. Each station encouraged families to work together to complete a tactile literacy activity and then write about it. Bilingual "tour guides" supported Spanish-speaking families throughout the evening as well. The evening also featured camp singalongs, led by former Columbus teacher John Schreiber.  Students and parents also received books from Book Fairies in Freeport.  

New Visions Reading Teachers Tricia Stasi and Lori Golbert served as camp director and assistant camp director, respectively, to host the evening.
