Spring Forward Distributes 1,700 Summer Success Kits and 5,000 books

For the past six weeks, Spring Forward has distributed more than 1,700 kits Summer Success Kits and 5,000 books to RIMSD #41 students.
 
With many camps, activities, and events canceled, there are fewer ways for families to keep kids learning and engaged. Spring Forward, with support from community partners, is hosting a remote summer camp to keep kids learning over the summer months and prepare for the school year.
 
Spring Forward annually hosts summer enrichment camps with a focus on summer learning for more than 300 children in the Rock Island-Milan School District. Its goal has always been to curb summer learning loss or the "summer slide." 
 
This year Spring Forward decided not to gather for camps and switch to a remote camp. The new model includes Summer Success Kits and on-line learning opportunities at springforwardsummercamp.com. Families have picked up a new kit each week for six weeks in June and July.
 
All materials and instructions needed for activities are included in the kits. All campers also get a new grade-level book each week. Spring Forward will distribute 5,000 books this summer at camp, on bike patrol, and at pop up book giveaways.
