Play & Learn Summer Literacy Camp


Now in its 13th 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 are 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 helps to improve their self-confidence and enjoyment in reading, writing, math, and physical literacy.

Each year, this successful camp has deterred "summer fall-off" for these early learners.  Hundreds of children in the Sooke Region have maintained or improved their literacy skills each summer at Play & Learn Camp.
