The Rec N' Read Experience

Minnesota State Mankato Rec and Read instructors with students outside on a green lawn playing a group game.

Whether it's a weekly after-school session or a week-long summer camp, Rec N' Read is a fun and positive way for kids who may struggle with reading or writing to get 1:1 literacy intervention and recreation activity. We work with children in grades K-5 or children with disabilities.

What to expect: 

  • Children will receive live literacy intervention and and live recreational time each session
  • 1:1 literacy intervention sessions with expert staff will be offered, if interested
  • Spaces available for 40 elementary-aged children during after-school sessions (grades K-5)
  • Literacy activities designed to boost academic skills and success
  • Recreation activities that improve social, emotional (self-efficacy and persistence), and physical health outcomes
  • Activities that prmote safe and healthy opportunities for growth and development
