Frontier College will help keep children reading this summer

Starting this week, Frontier College will offer the 14th year of Summer Literacy Camps to 7,500 children, 5–15 years old, throughout Canada. We have partnered with over 130 communities to create programs that support each region’s desire to give their children a fun—and educational—summer. Frontier College focuses on developing fundamental skills in reading and writing, which will help students to be more successful in the following school year.Over 400 camp counsellors, many of whom are local community members, will work to prevent the learning loss that often occurs over the summer months when kids are out of school.
Offered at no cost to parents, campers will increase their reading and math skills through storytelling, arts and crafts, science experiments, and writing. In addition to the academic benefits they experience, parents and educators agree that campers return to school with more confidence and enthusiasm because of their personal achievements at camp.

Frontier College will also distribute up to 25,000 new books to campers and communities this summer. For many kids, the highlight of the day is choosing a book to take home.
