News 12 Visits LitCamp at The Hebrew Home at Riverdale

There is a very special LitCamp happening this week at The Hebrew Home at Riverdale, a nonprofit nursing home in the Bronx. On Tuesday, the campers had the chance to interview residents with questions they created like, "What is the funniest joke you know?" and "What is your favorite meal?" Old and young came together for this meaningful interaction! 

25 kids with our partners at Broadway Housing Communities in Harlem are attending this special one-week LitCamp in partnership with Hebrew Home at Riverdale. Kids and residents are participating in this intergenerational interview project that will culminate in a collaborative "Story Tree" art installation to display the answers to the interview questions.

LitWorld is happy to partner with the Hebrew Home and Broadway Housing Communities to bring joyful learning and intergenerational experiences to residents and campers. This innovative approach to summer learning builds off of LitWorld’s signature LitCamp program to prevent the “summer slide”--a fallback in students’ academic achievement over the summer break.
