Reading break

St. Bernadette’s gives their children a supervised environment for learning and fun while ensuring that all are safe while playing. The kids are in an inclusive spot as it allows for the abled kids and the physically/intellectually challenged peers to enjoy recreational activities.

Reading to staff

Literacy is also important to the camp as they want the children to carry what they learned in their previous year of school into the next without forgetting throughout the summer. They accomplish this by making reading fun so the kids don’t feel like they’re learning but instead having simple fun.
