The Super WHY! Summer Reading Camp is a breakthrough three-week-long program that invites beginning readers to practice key reading skills and transform into “Super Readers”. The camp was created to teach pre-reading skills to rising kindergarteners and first graders by viewing a clip of the Super WHY! television series each morning and completing corresponding games, crafts and activities throughout the day. This recipe for learning has been a huge success!

WFSU is proud to partner with the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend once again this summer, bringing adventures in pre-literacy to 10 local preschools! These are just a few of the many reasons this camp is so terrific:
WFSU partnered with the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend on a brand new educational experiment with 4 local preschools: LDM Academy, Kids Village, New Center for Enrichment for Children & Horizons Unlimited. We were delighted with the learning gains and look forward to continuing this work in 2017 and beyond.
Take time to look through the 2016 camp report.
