Children’s Programs



Summer Camp Grades 1-6

August 10-14, 9am-12pm, FREE

Call NOW to reserve your space at our summer camp for grades 1-6. Join educator Catherine Hunter to read stories about castles, fairies, gnomes, Japanese Oni monsters, dragons, and unicorns. Make your own castle flag, build a fairy/gnome rock garden, paint a Japanese Oni mask then dance and drum, make dragon scales and eggs, and create your own unicorn horn! Camp is indoors and outdoors. Each camper receives a colorful cloth bag and a fairy tale anthology book. FREE! Bring your own snack.

For over 30 years, Catherine Hunter has been a primary school educator in both private and public schools. With a double master’s degree in early childhood education, her expertise is in the area of children’s literacy.

Note: If we determine at a later date that in person programming is not possible, campers can stop by the library’s curbside pickup for a “take and make” activity each camp day to share with their family at home. Reservations are required because space is very limited. Call the library at 802-325-3123 today!
