BUNK READS is a book discovery program. 

The program supports campers’ year-round independent reading by introducing them to new children’s books and authors in a literacy-rich camp environment. 2016 is the program’s pilot year.

BUNK READS LIBRARY

A collection of 50 acclaimed picture books, novels and non-fiction children’s books will arrive at select Maine camps in the summer of 2016.  Take a sneak peek at the 2016 collection.

READ. REVIEW. WIN.

Campers are invited to review the books they discover and read at camp. When those reviews happen online using the hashtag #BunkReads, campers will be entered to win a box of books!

Five random camp book reviewers will win a box of children’s books shipped to them in December.  MORE INFO.
