Reading Buddy in Summer Enrichment Camp in Franklin County

In 2021, we will offer Summer Enrichment Camp in Franklin County, Monday through Friday from June 14 through July 1. Camp will meet at Burnt Chimney Elementary School in Wirtz. If you live permanently or in a vacation home near Smith Mountain Lake, we welcome your support.

Reading Buddies read one-on-one with children (rising 1st through 6th graders). On most days, you will spend 30 minutes each with four different children. We try to pair you with the same children each day you are at camp.

We hope you can commit to a full week--or both weeks--from 9:45 to 12 noon. Please sign up even if you are unable to spend the entire week. Special bonds will form between you and the children; that is a guarantee!

NOTE: Anyone working as a Reading Buddy is required to have a background check. Details of the procedure will be provided when you sign up as a volunteer. If you worked as a volunteer with Good Neighbors the previous year, you do not need a new background check.
