Play & Learn Summer Literacy Camp

 

Now in its 9th year, this summer program aims to provide a rich play-based learning environment for children 6-9 years of age from low income families, aboriginal, and who had been identified by their school as not yet meeting expectations in Literacy and/or Numeracy. All children were referred by the school principal and/or School Based Team. 

 

The camp is free, provides healthy snacks and lunches, takes children on weekly educational field trips, and therefore helps to improve their self-confidence and enjoyment in reading, writing, math, and physical literacy.
 

Every year, this succesful camp has deterred "summer fall-off" for these early learners, and more than 100 children in the Sooke Region have maintained or improved their literacy skills.
