The Northern Kentucky Reading Camp has been operating for eight years and is currently planning a camp for forty children. The camp's mission is to promote personal and
academic growth and success of struggling and at-risk students through summertime non-formal educational opportunities. It empowers and encourages at-risk children to be strong readers, engaged students and responsible members of their communities.
By integrating confidence and interdisciplinary activities into the literacy learning process, they address the needs of the whole child and take steps toward breaking the connection between illiteracy and poverty.
