Through Weeks 1-5, we will be offering Play & Learn camps for children age 4-6. Our Play & Learn Literacy day camps provide opportunities for daily read alouds, sand and block play, puppet shows, an art studio and more! Each day will focus on early literacy skills with opportunities to practice letter/sound recognition, letter formation, sentence building and more - all in fun and interactive ways!​ You will have the option for single full days or the full week. Play & Learn campers will join with our themed week campers during some portions of the day (e.g. lunch, outdoor play, reading buddies and play-based centres). They will also be invited to join in any theme-related days planned as part of the above weekly themes.

Join us as we explore the fun and captivating ways in which we use literacy every day! Through hands-on, authentic learning opportunities, children will see how literacy can be enjoyed through art, science, nature and more! Camps are led by Nipissing University teacher education students. Sign up for one or more weeks. Spaces are limited.​
