“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!

You’ll get up close and personal with great authors five days a week and make new friends who also can’t get enough of a good read.

COVID-19 UPDATE:We hope you and your family are doing well during this difficult time. Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community. Given the unprecedented circumstances, we are taking the necessary steps to transition our summer camp to a remote platform. We are very excited to announce that we are going to hold a “virtual” Thalia Kids’ Book Club Camp.

Virtual Camp 2020 is SOLD OUT.

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.

We're excited by our new version of Thalia Kids Book Club Camp! We've lined up incredible and diverse books and confirmed authors who are eager to connect with our extraordinary campers. Our history and experience with this camp has made an indelible mark in the hearts of so many campers over the years, and we couldn't imagine not offering it again despite the circumstances. While we will miss seeing everyone in-person, we're going to have a wonderful time!
