BOOKS, BOOKS AND MORE BOOKS!
“The day starts with being greeted by a Rotarian. Then we proceed to our teams and meet all of our new friends. We sing songs, read stories and get to dream about being a super hero. We play outside, make cool pictures and then it is time to go home…. Just another day at the Rotary Summer Literacy Program. It is so much FUN!!!!”
The Rotary Summer Literacy Program operates 3 two week sessions. This free program is offered to young people across Hamilton with a focus on youth at risk. Children attend the program to have fun during the summer months—no more teacher, no more books…not the case here. The fun activities promote and encourage reading and the love for learning. Over 350 children attend the program daily and many will maintain their literacy level over the summer holidays when many children’s level regress. There is a lot of fun and laughter that happens, but there is also a lot of learning.
“At the end of the two weeks at Summer Literacy we have a BBQ and my mom and grandmother attended. We had hotdogs and then my group did our performance. I was a super star….and then at the end of camp I got a new book to take home. This time I can’t wait to get home so I can read the book I just got!” Jeff – Rotary Summer Literacy
ROTARIANS GO TO CAMP…
Summer camp is not just for kids! The Rotary Summer Literacy Program has been visited each day by one of our club members. The Rotarian of the Day program engages our Rotarians to visit the Rotary Summer Literacy program and to see first-hand how the program operates and the value of the program.
The Rotarian of the Day greets the children and their parents, then joins the campfire song session and story read out loud. The response has been great! The parents meet the Rotarians, the young people get to meet positive role models and Rotarians can see first-hand what their Sunshine Fund Donations help support.
