Book Camp London

Book Camp London

Book Camp London offers fun and creative workshops over five days for children ages 10-15. The camp, inspired by similar ventures in other communities, connects children to professionals in the world of children’s literature.

Authors, illustrators and other experts educate, motivate and mentor the campers. The students' writing and illustrating skills are developed, their knowledge of careers in literature increases and they continue to develop an interest in learning opportunities outside the formal classroom.  

Thank you to the Ontario Endowment for Children and Youth in Recreation Fund, a fund held within London Community Foundation for their support of Book Camp London.

Book Camp London 2016

Book Camp London 2016 was held August 8th to 12th at the Central Branch of the London Public Library.

The campers enjoyed workshops presented by published authors, a library scavenger hunt, performing play excerpts, creating friendships, working on their writing and art pieces, a field trip to Museum London and much more.

A lot of fun was had and many campers at the end of the week were saying that they could hardly wait until next year's camp!
