Children deserve the help they need to learn to read
Join with Summer Camp Reading to help struggling readers
Our mission is to eliminate educational inequity and summer slide by helping struggling readers improve in reading comprehension, fluency and vocabulary by 4th grade. SCR has locations in Cincinnati, Columbus and one virtual site, since 2010 we have served over 1,000 campers. Every camper improves.
Illiteracy leads to joblessness and a greater likelihood of incarceration. Every community is affected by struggling readers.
38.9% of Ohio's 3rd-8th graders don't read proficiently*
71.4% are economically disadvantaged*

Camp is Fun and Educational
What Parents are Saying After Camp
"My daughter is now carrying books around with her. I am thrilled!"
"At the beginning of camp, Jave did not want to participate. By the end of the session he had jumped to reading 2 grade levels higher and won a spelling bee."
"My son has begun to pick up books and read signs, which he had never done before!"
