Get students to continue to read during the summer months--and enjoy it Camp Summer Read: How to Create Your Own Summer Reading Camp is the brainchild of two Texas librarians who have created just such a camp--and have a waiting list of kids who want to attend.

What they offer is a complete, how-to handbook based on their own experiences developing and running a summer reading camp for children. Organized as a checklist, the book is a step-by-step guide that includes everything you need to know to plan and run your own summer reading camp. It includes multiple book lists and read-aloud lists and dozens of book-based activities. It also includes tips on staffing and management and on things as seemingly mundane as assembling the right forms. For those not quite ready to start a camp, the reading activities and ideas presented here can easily be applied in a classroom or home situation.
C. Kay Gooch is the librarian at Gullett Elementary School, Austin, TX. Charlotte Massey is a librarian in the Hays CISD School District, TX.
