Calling all young readers and writers from ages 8-11, this exciting camp is just for you!  Each day of the week (July 17th - 21st) has a specific beloved book as its focus and all of that day's activities will be inspired by its respective book. For example, on The Mysterious Benedict Society day, we will practice our Morse Code skills and head out on a scavenger hunt, and for My Side of the Mountain, we will learn foraging skills with a local outdoor adventurer! There will be short a writing exercise every day, as well as a healthy snack. Other activities will include playing games, solving mysteries, and a craft or two. The featured titles are:

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Stewart
Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein 
by Raina Telgemeier 
My Side of the Mountain
 by Jean Craighead George
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler  by E.L. Konisgburg
