Spending the summer with good books is the best way to maintain reading skills and return to school ready to succeed. More importantly, it’s fun!
This year Rx for Reading gave a collection of 180 books to 30 fantastic kids in River Rouge. The Hyacinth Court Summer program provides free day camp for children age 7 to 14 who live in River Rouge public housing. Campers and their families are provided with free breakfast and lunch each day, and campers participate in an array of enrichment and academic activities and take weekly field trips to educational sites in Metro Detroit.
