WHEE READ Summer Literacy Camp at Cullowhee UMC

Cullowhee UMC has received a grant from The Duke Endowment to provide a summer literacy camp for rising 1st-3rd graders.  The summer camp will start in June and last for 6 weeks, June 17-July 30.

The Duke Endowment is working with rural congregations in North Carolina to combat learning loss in their communities through evidence-informed summer literacy programs for rising first- through fourth-graders. The goals are to improve literacy outcomes for students who are at risk for reading failure and encourage churches to play an effective role in helping children and families.

The grant money will fund the teachers, but there is much more to running this program. It will take a LOT of us to make this project a success.  Areas where we need YOUR help include:
