Summer Children Reading Camp (SCRC)

promoting reading culture in children

The Summer Children Reading Camp (SCRC) is an annual event for children in upper primary and secondary schools. It is designed to foster reading culture in children and to promote healthy social and intellectual interaction amongst children.

SCRC is a Sixth Sense Initiative conceived with the belief that bringing children together in a structured environment and programme, will develop reading culture in children through team work and collaboration. It will as well raise children with problem-solving skills with the power of information harnessed from the reading projects assigned to children in groups at the camp.

Reading is one of the greatest acts of civilisation because its takes the free raw material of the mind and builds castles of possibilities. - Ben Okri

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the brain. Reading builds knowledge needed to solve problems. Improves writing skills, focus and concentration. Our camps are organized in serene environments which spark the inspiration for children to read and explore outside their school discipline and textbooks.

SCRC Philosophies:

  1. Children read very fast as compared to adults.
  2. Children are assets for the future and investing in this human capital is the greatest investment.
  3. Children develop lifelong habits breathtakingly early. Cultivating reading habits in children will produce children ready to lead and take up future challenges.
  4. Readers are leaders, hence the need to groom children for tomorrow’s challenges.
