Yearly literacy program teaches reading in fun ways
Plant City Black Heritage Celebration, Inc. will once again host the Lots of Hugs Summer Reading Camp, from June 6 to July 29.
The summer camp’s purpose is to increase children’s reading level and character development. The eight-week event will offer the “Just Read” Literacy Program, writing, water safety, educational field trips as well as breakfast, lunch, and snacks.
It will operate Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and is for ages 6 to 14.
Lots of Hugs began in 2010 at Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church and relocated to Hope Lutheran Church in 2018 to accommodate the increase in enrollments.
An open house will be held on May 21 at 10 a.m. and is mandatory for children’s parents or guardians.
Registration is available now at the Hope Lutheran Church, 2001 N. Park Rd, in Plant City. This will run Mondays to Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The fee will be $80 per child and can be accepted by cash, check, or money order.
Parents/Guardians are asked to download and fill out the application at www.Celebration2.Homestead.com.
