The Camp Blast program supports students in Grades 1 to 2 with a focus on their literacy skills. The camp ran five days a week from July 11- to July 29, from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. There was a total of four hours of instruction each day, with a focus on building literacy skills as well as providing opportunities for Daily Physical Activity (DPA), visual arts, and cooperative games.
Child and Youth Care Workers met with classes twice a week to support building community, friendship, and self-regulation. Family sessions were also held to discuss the instruction and support available to families in the area of mental health.
We had four sites with 160 students in total.
