Play & Learn Summer Literacy Camp

 

Now in its 8th year, this summer program aims to provide a rich play-based learning environment for children ages 6-9 years who are mostly from Aboriginal and/or low-income families. These children are identified by their school-based teams as having difficulties meeting grade level expectations.  Registration to the camp is done by a referral basis and children are selected by their school-based teams.

 

The camp is free, provides healthy snacks and lunches, takes children on weekly field 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.
