Summer Camp in Hamilton


The Rotary Summer Literacy Program is a free program that focuses on literacy providing participants with an engaging model of shared and guided independent reading and writing activities.

Register for Summer Camp

Children who attend the program maintain and/or improve their literacy skills. The Rotary Summer Literacy Program is designed to engage, enrich, educate, and excite, creating a truly special learning experience for one and all.

The three-week summer camp-style program is offered to participants for free. Many of the children attending the camp are from at-risk or high-needs neighbourhoods. Too many barriers face them and their families each day, and the cost of attending summer camp is usually one of the biggest barriers.

Your support will help get a child to camp!

Through the “Send a kid to Camp Campaign” kids from all backgrounds and abilities can learn, play and have fun at our literacy day camp program.  It doesn’t matter your postal code, your neighbourhood, every child can attend the Rotary Summer Literacy program at no cost!

A child’s brighter future begins with your gift. Help a child in our community.

Please help give today to help a child get to camp:

  • $25 sends a kid to camp for one week
  • $50 sends 2 kids to camp for a week
  • $75 sends a kid to camp for the whole summer

Every child in the program will receive a book to create their own home library. The gift of literacy

Please know that whatever amount you’re able to give will be much appreciated. All donations will receive a full tax receipt for the value of the donation.
