Each summer, up to 100 children get the opportunity to participate in this proven and effective program for grades K-4. The program is taught on site, four days a week over the course of eight weeks in June and July. The students are tested at the beginning and end of the program to measure improvement.
Years ago, John 3:16 Mission started a Christ-centered reading program to help children in our community who are struggling readers and in danger of falling way behind. That program is called Summer KIDS Camp.
The John 3:16 Mission Summer KIDS Camp (Read a Testimonial Story Here) is an accelerated summer literacy program for children grades K-4 who have had difficulty learning to read. The program utilizes a highly successful curriculum which is phonics based, taught by direct instruction, and utilizes the creative process to engage a path to learning. Summer KIDS Camp is eight weeks in duration and the program includes meals, snacks, and reward field trips to promote positive progress.
Our goals for the students are:
1. Rapid improvement in reading and spelling skills so each student may be able to
reach their respective grade level and beyond.
2. Corresponding improvement in reading comprehension.
3. Character development lessons to better equip each child with a sound moral and ethical foundation.
