Summer literacy camp to be held at SVSU

Saginaw Valley State University will host a camp created to enhance literacy skills in students from kindergarten to adulthood.

The three-week program will run Tuesday through Friday, July 17-20, and then Monday through Thursday, July 23-26, and July 30-Aug. 2.

Prior to attending the clinic, participants must take an assessment, available on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 26-27, at 3 p.m., 4 p.m., 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. The assessment requires a $50 non-refundable deposit that will go towards the $270 tuition fee for the literacy camp.

The program consists of 50-minute sessions featuring small group or 1-on-1 instruction; classes meet four times per week for the duration of the clinic. To track each student's progress throughout the camp, they will be given an assessment before and after completion of the program.

Utilizing the latest technology, certified teachers will conduct the tutoring sessions that are designed to foster motivation for reading. Each tutor has specialized training in reading that will allow them to create individualized lesson plans for participants.

To enroll, please contact Laurie Ann Haney, assistant director of the Literacy Center, at 989-964-4982 or For more information, visit
