Camp Caribu Week 2 Celebrates Father Figures

Campers, are you ready for Week Two? This week #CampCaribu celebrates Father Figures in our lives. With Father’s Day around the corner, this week is a chance to appreciate the dads, grandpas, uncles, cousins, educators, coaches, and neighbors who are part of your community. What are some of the ways that they have made a positive impact?

This week’s books include stories about fathers and grandfathers who nurture their relationship with their (grand)children through thoughtful dialogue, creative activities, and a warm presence. The characters and conversations in the text will inspire readers to embrace the joy of small moments together. Additionally, you will find drawing pages in the Caribu app to celebrate, with coloring outlines, puzzles, cards, and more. Color together and share your favorites with family members. 

If you are not yet enrolled in #CampCaribu, download the app and sign up today at On the homepage, you will find a reading log to download and track the books you read. You also will find discussion questions, art activities and more. Check the schedule every day to get the most out of your camp experience. 

On the calendar this week: Try a cooking activity with your little ones to honor a Father Figure or special relative in your life! Saturday’s featured activity, America’s Test Kitchen Kids: English Muffin Pizzas offers a fun opportunity to prepare a treat for your family. What will be your pizza toppers? Decorate your snack with colorful veggies or meats and share photos of your creations with #CampCaribu on social media. Make sure to buy the ingredients in advance, and supervise children when using the oven and sharp kitchen tools.
