Drop Everything and Read Silently, At Camp! Part 2

I thought I would add this as a follow-up post.

Offering an opportunity for silent reading/quiet activities was one of my best ideas for camp this week. It was a real treat seeing so many children, even those who proclaimed not to like reading, looking avidly through the books together that had been selected for camp, from Eyewitness-style non-fiction to sports books to mystery novels. I got requests for books during the week, and some campers even brought their own! Unsurprising to me, the Bone and Pokemon graphic novels were in demand! My supervisor and I felt that it was wonderful having the "library" brought to our campers at a municipal March Break camp.
