Books-A-Million offers programs such as the Fun Camp as a refreshing way to help parents provide their children with creative outlets for learning during the summer break.
"Books-A-Million is focused on ways to engage our local communities and get children excited to read," said Jeff Skipper, Vice President of Marketing at Books-A-Million. "Each activity is designed to inspire children to use their imaginations and discover that reading is fun," he stated.
Parents should put Family Fun Camp on every July must-do list. Four different themes, each with associated books, will keep the activities fresh and encourage repeat visitation.
