Three libraries awarded Camp Wonderopolis® program funding
The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) and its Wonderopolis® team congratulate three libraries on receiving Camp Wonderopolis® 2017 grants. Covina Public Library (Covina, California), Leonard Reed Elementary School (Cedar Park, Texas), and Taylor County Public Library (Campbellsville, Kentucky) are gearing up to host Camp Wonderopolis workshops for families this summer.
These three official Camp Wonderopolis Campsites will combine online Camp content with fun, hands-on Maker activities and special guest speakers to keep children and their families engaged and learning over the summer.
Camp Wonderopolis is NCFL’s free, online summer-learning destination that is open to individuals and groups. Camp helps build vocabulary, reading comprehension, and literacy skills through hands-on Maker activities and 42 interactive lessons on topics such as “Why is there so much foam in a root beer float?” and “How does dynamite work?”
Camp Wonderopolis has proven to be a great way to keep families engaged and learning together during out-of-school time and over the summer. An after-school program leader from New York reports that “[hosting Camp events] is the first time we’ve had parents come to our program to do learning activities with their child. It’s great to see parents just as excited as the kids.”
A new version of Camp Wonderopolis is published every summer and is available year-round at no cost. All editions of Camp are available at camp.wonderopolis.org. The 2017 edition will launch June 12.

Camp Wonderopolis grants are closed for 2017, but libraries and programs can still become official Campsites. Program and Family kits are available for purchase at store.wonderopolis.org to encourage learning at home and on the go.
We hope to see you at the Campgrounds!
