Summer Literacy Camps

The Lieutenant Governor's Indigenous Summer Reading Camp program began in Ontario in 2005 as a pilot partnership between the former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Hon. James Bartleman—a member of the Mnjikaning First Nation—and five fly-in First Nations in northern Ontario. Since then, this successful program has expanded to over 100 communities and serves thousands of First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) children and youth across the country. 

The Summer Literacy Camps program sets out to:

  1. Prevent summer learning loss
  2. Nurture a love of reading and learning
  3. Build on the literacy and numeracy skills of campers
  4. Promote parental and community involvement in the children’s learning
  5. Strengthen community capacity and build community partnerships
