The Summer Literacy Camps Initiative is a partnership between United Way Regina, Regina Catholic School Division and Regina Public School Division.  The Literacy Camps address learning loss that occurs every school break, and most significantly in the summer. Children from low-income households are at an even greater risk of losing ground than their more affluent peers. These camps align and support the Ministry of Education’s Long-Term Provincial Education Plan, and United Way Regina’s Campaign for Grade Level Reading (CGLR) commitment.

Teacher Selection Process

Preference will be given to early years educators currently teaching at one of the designated camp sites. Should spots still be available, an open call to early years educators from within your division will be made. *Lead teacher positions must be filled by an early years teacher from the home school. Teacher applications will be reviewed in partnership with your school division, and selections will be made by Thursday, March 30, 2023. The school administrator will contact you if you are a successful applicant.
