SPARK is a summer program aimed at preventing summer learning loss.
The average student loses two months of reading skills over the summer. SPARK was started to prevent this summer learning loss from happening. As it turns out, the program is so successful that the average SPARK camper is actually gaining reading skills over the summer! Thanks to funding from the 21st Century Community Learning Center, SCAN, the Community Foundation and generous local donors, Wabash County students who are recommended by their teachers receive a scholarship to SPARK camp - and participate in the same activities as day camp plus evidence-based interactive classroom learning and free books to take home!
