Camp Summer Read: How to Create Your Own Summer Reading Camp
With schoolwork out of the way and many of their extracurricular activities on hold, summer is the perfect time for kids to enjoy the fun of reading or listening to stories. It's also the perfect time for teachers and librarians to promote readingłand maybe even earn a few dollarsłby organizing a summer reading camp. Camp Summer Read: How to Create Your Own Summer Reading Camp is the brainchild of two Texas librarians who have created just such a campłand have a waiting list of kids who want to attend.
What they offer is a complete, how-to handbook based on their own experiences developing and running a summer reading camp for children. Organized as a checklist, the book is a step-by-step guide that includes everything you need to know to plan and run your own summer reading camp. It includes multiple book lists and read-aloud lists and dozens of book based activities. It also includes tips on staffing and management and on things as seemingly mundane as assembling the right forms. For those not quite ready to start a camp, the reading activities and ideas presented here can easily be applied in a classroom or home situation.
