Edcamp Bemidji Supports - Bemidji Area Reading Canines
EdCampBJI has a great history of contributing to fantastic local projects. We are pleased to announce this year's philanthropy project: Bemidji Area Reading Canines (B.A.R.C.)
WHAT IS B.A.R.C. ?
Bemidji Area Reading Canines program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog. But not just any dog! B.A.R.C. dogs are therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children. Current Bemidji area trained therapy dog volunteers include 4-H members & leaders, along with members of the public.
Today, hundreds of reading dog teams work throughout the United States and Canada. (Learn more...)
As in year's past, when Edcamp Bemidji Attendees make a donation to our philanthropy partner they will earn a ticket towards one of our fabulous door prizes.
