2019 Dates coming soon!

A great Rotary Summer Literacy Program!

The Rotary Club of Hamilton is proud to offer children in Kindergarten to Grade 5 the Rotary Summer Literacy Program this past summer. This free program will ran from Monday July 16th to Friday August 3rd, 2018 at Cathy Wever Elementary School.

Program participants joined our staff from 9:00 am to 2:15 pm, Monday through Friday. The Rotary Summer Literacy Program focuses on literacy, engaging participants with modeled, shared, guided, and independent reading and writing activities. Children who attend our program maintain and/or improve their literacy skills. Over the course of a day, your child will also experience various day camp activities through our program options (listed below). The main goal at Rotary Summer Literacy is to ensure educational activities and experiences are fun for everyone!

Rotary Summer Literacy 2018 offered the following Program Options:

Sports and Games

Get active this summer: Floorball, basketball, and soccer are standard! We take these classic activities and add a mix of cooperative camp games.

 Arts and Crafts

From creative crafts to digital photography, your “Peewee Picasso” will get their artistic juices flowing. Clear room on the fridge!


Hooray for Hollywood! Join our team for an action-packed session of movie making, play writing, and dramatic fun!


Learn to be a real-life guitar hero, vocal legend or instrumental phenomena. Participants will enjoy a fun-filled session of exploring, creating, and performing music!


Is hip-hop your thing? Ever wondered about ballet? Boogie down and get your groove on with our dynamic dance ensemble!

All primary/junior students in Hamilton currently in Grades K – 5 are invited!

 The City of Hamilton, Hamilton Public Library, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board and the Rotary Club of Hamilton sponsor the Rotary Summer Literacy Program. Parents are responsible for providing a lunch and transportation for their child(ren).
