The Saskatchewan government invested 500 thousand dollars to support school divisions in delivering 20 summer literacy camps across the province. Creighton School Division received funds and their camp wrapped up yesterday. Camp Coordinator Brie Phillips says they helped students maintain and improve their literacy skills. She explains it went great as they had lots of kids come out, in Creighton they had about 20 and in Denare Beach a total of 32 over the whole time so they had a really great turnout. She says they had three different theme weeks and they did lots of fun things with different literacy games and they read books everyday and they got to take books home at the end of the day as well.
Phillips adds the camp also focused on First Nations and Metis content so they had many related crafts and nature walks.
