Virtual Thalia Kids Book Club Camp

Thalia Kids Book Club Camp

“LOVED this camp.” Review from past camper

Are your favorite authors more interesting than YouTube stars? Do you read even when you can hardly keep your eyes open? Do you dream about being a famous writer?

Come to the Virtual Thalia Kids Book Club Camp and spend a week with all things books and writing! We cover it all - fantasy, adventure, realistic fiction, sci fi, nonfiction, graphic novels and more.

VIrtual Thalia Kids Book Club Camp is for kids (9 - 14) who love to read!

We are very excited to announce that we will once again hold a “virtual” Thalia Kids’ Book Club Camp. We have an incredible line-up of diverse books and a slate of compelling guest authors who are eager to connect with our extraordinary campers. Campers will get up close and personal with these authors and make new friends who also can’t get enough of a good read.

Camp Schedule
  • Week 1: July 12 - 16 for ages 9 - 11
  • Week 2: July 19 - 23 for ages 9 - 11
  • Week 3: July 26 - 30 for ages 9 - 11
  • Week 4: Aug. 2 - 6 for ages 12 - 14 (note: this is the only week for this age group.)

Consider becoming a Symphony Space member to get a discount on the camp fee! $300/week for Symphony Space members. $325/week for non-members.

At the end of the registration form, you will be prompted to click through to submit payment via the Symphony Space online store. Please note that your registration will not be confirmed until the forms and the payment have both been submitted, so you must complete both steps. We only accept online payments.

Here's what you can expect from Virtual Camp:

  • There will be 5 books for each week your child is registered for.
  • Every day there will be an interactive visit from the author of each of those books, including discussions and hands-on activities.
  • Book-related games and activities (We will be sure to have plenty of physical activities throughout the camp “day.”)
  • Reading, drawing, writing, and visiting time with other book-loving campers
  • We will be conducting all of the above via Zoom. Adult staff will be present at all times.
  • The guest author will “sign” each camper’s book remotely. What does that mean? Each camper will get to speakwith the author at the end of the session. The author will write their autograph on a piece of paper for that camper. For example: “To Madeline, So glad you enjoyed my book, Charles Dickens.” The author will email all the dedications to us and we will send each camper theirs. They can then insert or paste it into the book.
  • You will order the books for your camper.
  • The hours will be 9 AM – 12:30 PM EST. Campers can sign on as early as 8:30 AM for a supervised “free time” session.
  • Once we get your registration, we will send you an email with the book list for the week(s) you registered for.
