The 2022 theme Read Beyond the Beaten Path combines camp, adventure, and skill development.
Summer camp at the library can encompass many different summer experiences such as:
• Outdoors: hiking, campfires, stories, and s’mores
• Animal identification
• Arts and crafts
• Talent shows
• Earning badges

camp and math camp and science camp.
