The Night Before Summer Camp

The Night Before Summer Camp

by Natasha Wing Illustrated by Mindy Pierce

Heading off to a new camp experience can give little ones just as many butterflies as the first day of school, but this wise and funny rhyme is a great way to help them deal with their concerns.

A little boy is worried that he won't make any friends, but before he knows it, he is swimming and exploring nature trails with the other kids. He stars in plays and runs in three-legged races, and at the end of the day, he can't believe he was ever scared about summer camp.
