Parents should put Family Fun Camp on every July must-do list. Four different themes, each with associated books, will keep the activities fresh and encourage repeat visitation.

July 12: “Under the Sea Adventure”

  • Every little girl dreams of being a mermaid and every little boy dreams of being a pirate. Join the fun to make mermaid crowns and pirate captain’s hats, participate in the undersea story time, make sand castle art, and learn fun pirate lingo.

July 19: “Superhero Saturday”

  • Save the world from certain destruction and tap into your inner powers by creating your own top-secret superhero identity, crafting superhero cuffs as a part of your costume, and participating in crime-fighting games.

July 26: "Celebrate Harry Potter’s Birthday”

  • Are you a Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin? Come dressed in your favorite Hogwart’s school attire and find out by attending our sorting hat ceremony. Then, be tested on your wizardry knowledge, and earn your very own wand.
