Life is a Fantasy

Camp BOOK IT!

All of July we will be featuring fantasy books for our campers! We may not all be able to take a vacation this summer, but we can travel anywhere in our imaginations!

For our younger campers, we have The Fairy DogmotherAfter reading this sweet tale, use our Fantasy Story Cards to create your own adventure! Cut them out and have your kids place them in any order they wish to tell a story. This is a great chance to explain that stories have a beginning, middle, end, settings and characters. Let their imaginations run free!

If your students are third grade and up, take a look at The Boy, The Wolf, and The Stars, then have them try their hand at writing their own fantasy story.
