Books-A-Million will host a Family Fun Camp at all 258 of its stores nationwide, every Saturday in July from 2-4pm.
Books-A-Million offers programs such as the Family Fun Camp as a refreshing way to help parents provide their children with creative outlets for learning during the summer break.
“Books-A-Million is focused on ways to engage our local communities and get children excited to read,” says Jeff Skipper, vice president of marketing at Books-A-Million. “Each activity is designed to inspire children to use their imaginations and discover that reading is fun.”
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 5: “Summer Adventure Saturday”
- Search the store for reasons to read with a scavenger hunt, hear tall tales of adventure during story time, and participate in activities designed to introduce kids to the wonders of reading.
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.
