Summer 2022: Read Beyond the Beaten Path

Read Beyond the Beaten Path combines camp, adventure, and skill development. Summer camp at the library can encompass many different summer experiences:
• Outdoors: hiking, campfires, stories, and s’mores
• Animal identification • Arts and crafts • Music • Talent shows • Earning badges

STEM is very easy to work into this theme because of its nature and outdoor aspects but you can also have space camp and math camp and science camp. Those would be additional badges. 

Books like Spy Camp by Stewart Gibbs, Be Prepared by Vera Brosgol, Rick Riordan’s The Trials of Apollo, Book One, or the 2021 title Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law by Mary Roach lend themselves to great theme-based stories and activities.
