Summer Reading Camp now on its 3rd Year!


I've always exposed McKenzie to books since she was a baby. 3 Layers of the shelves in her room houses the books we've collected thru the years. She just recently started reading on her own so she is going through each every night.
I've read about the Summer Reading Camp and I've wanted to bring McKenzie all the way to QC to make her experience it but haven't been lucky- so I am so happy when I learned that it's happening next month!
Get ready to see Filipino stories come alive and take home a part of them with you thru art- as the 3rd Summer Reading Camp open their doors this April 17, Sunday, from 10am to 4pm!

It will be a whole day of reading, storytelling and art activities for kids aged 3-12! 



 
 

There will be teepees setup "camping in the city style" and three corners for them to explore namely:

READING CORNER –where they can borrow and read all the books they want from our Book Mobile Phils mobile library on site

ART CORNER – where they can unleash their inner artist by engaging in art activities related to stories read to them

STORYTELLING CORNER – where thay will listen and watch as children’s stories come alive via The Storytelling Project team and Ms. Isa Mijares.

ADVOCACY CORNER- where our partner NGO Black Pencil Project will be hosting a Paint-a-Pencil activity where blank pencils will be designed by kids and parents, and will be donated to BPP's partner schools nationwide.

Aside from participating in these events, Adarna House will also be selling books on site at affordable rates. I love buying their story books that has and english translation as it allows us to better discuss the story with McKenzie.

An exciting surprise awaits the first 20 early birds (to arrive on the day) from their partner La Pomme Home.

Plus you can bring home a souvenir photo from their photobooth.

This event aims to rekindle and encourage a genuine love for reading in Filipino children, by spending one whole day doing reading related activities, ALL FOR FREE.
