FREE Summer Reading & Activity Program ~ Bug Camp

It's good to have kid activities ready for summer! Camping and getting outdoors tops our list. This free summer reading program called Bug Camp 2017 has some awesome daily activities, games, and ideas to get kids reading and even outside exploring. Free downloads!

As a parent of two school aged children, I confess I don’t worry too much about “stopping the summer slide”.  In Western Colorado, their summers off from school are precious and short.  They need a break.

But I have already noticed the antsy boredom.  And the too-much-screen time.  So when I heard of Cricket Media’s free summer reading and activity program, I immediately checked out the site.  They’ve got a great calendar set up, with something new to check each day.  So far I’m seeing downloadable activities that inspire reading and getting outside to explore with a nature bingo hunt.  Very cool!

This *just* started, so now’s a great time to get started and check it out!
