Saskatchewan Summer Literacy Camps (2012)

2012 Report

Since 2010, Frontier College has worked in partnership with the Ministry of Education to provide summer literacy camps for children in high-needs communities in Saskatchewan. This partnership addresses two of the ministry’s top priorities: improving student achievement by making provincial curriculum more accessible, relevant, and results-oriented; and providing equal opportunities and educational benefits for the growing number of First Nations and Métis children in the school system.

During the summer of 2012, almost a thousand children took part in the 25 camps that Frontier College organized in 23 rural and remote communities. In addition, more than 17,000 books, an average of 18 books per child, were given to the campers free of charge.

Follow-up evaluation showed that 98 percent of parents felt their children would return to school better prepared after taking part in the camps.

Founded in 1899, Frontier College is a Canada-wide organization that teaches literacy skills and nurtures lifelong learning through a range of programs in a variety of settings.
