Virtual Camp Maverick – Rec N’ Read for Youth Set for June 8-26
Mankato, Minn. – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s College of Allied Health and Nursing is once again offering a literacy intervention and recreation camp throughout the month of June to help children in kindergarten through fifth grades make important gains in literacy and well-being over the summer. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this camp will be virtual.
The camp, called Camp Maverick – Rec N’ Read, will be held from June 8-26. Registration for the camp will include access to the demonstration videos, take-home kits for all activities and lessons and live sessions with literacy and recreation experts.
The camp will feature three themes – “Into the Wild,” “My Spy Academy,” and “My Space Exploration” – intended to keep children interested in reading and recreation.
The camp kits cost $35 weekly, but financial assistance is available to those in need. Registration is available online at http://link.mnsu.edu/campmaverick.
