Summer KIDS Camp 21

Help at the Right Time!

For most kids, last year was a lost year – especially when it came to things like reading, writing and other basics. For the students who already were struggling to get through school, missing nearly a year of classroom instruction has been devastating.


There is a very real danger that many schoolchildren will never catch up and may become the long-term – even lifelong -- victims of the pandemic . It does not have to be this way.

 John 3:16 Mission has exactly the right program for them. It’s called SUMMER KIDS CAMP (SKC) and it’s just what these struggling youngsters need, especially at this time.

 SKC (to be held June 14 – Aug. 7) will allow up to 100 children to get the supplemental literacy enrichment they need to get back on track. Yes, even after missing nearly a year of in-class schooling, they CAN still catch up at John 3:16 Mission.

Great Results for Over 20 Years

For over 20 years, SKC has delivered incredible results for youngsters struggling with reading. How do we know? Testing. In fact, testing at the beginning and end of the 8-week program last year showed students improved, on average, more than an entire grade year in reading. The five-year average for the program shows students improving more than THREE QUARTERS of a school year!

This kind of life changing impact would not be possible without your support! You are the one who makes it possible for reading-challenged, low-income children to get the help they deserve in a supportive and Christ-centered environment.
