The Camp Sharigan Project is looking for children in first through third grade who need help with reading.

The program, which is free, will meet from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday and Thursday from Sept. 17 to May 9 at St. John’s at the northeast corner of Richland Avenue and Newberry Street.
Registration for the fall will close Sept. 13.

The Camp Sharigan Project is a nonreligious program. St. John’s provides financial support and classroom space.
The program uses the latest research-based techniques to reinforce reading skills, including vowel clustering and group-centered, hands-on, intrinsic motivation and 12 different teaching techniques, according to a news release from the project.
“We believe that every child can learn to read, and we look forward to helping them. Some students improve faster than others, but everyone improves. Each child is unique an they learn in different ways,” according to the program’s brochure.
