Shrine Mont is collaborating with the Virginia Association of Teachers of English (VATE) to hold Camp Curious this summer (July 7-12) for rising 3rd-6th grade students. The camp’s mission is to “Infuse struggling readers/writers with the joy and experiences of reading and writing.” Campers will go home with a “tool bag” for good reading and writing strategies. We will also provide students with supplies, books, and family reading and writing ideas.
The primary focus will be to support students from Page, Rockingham, and Shenandoah counties and Harrisonburg City who are struggling with or behind in their reading skills. VATE will work with camper families, teachers, and reading specialist (with the parent’s permission) to make sure each student is receiving the resources they need at camp. Shrine Mont will work with a trained staff of counselors to make camp fun and engaging for the week.
