Let's Go to Boys Camp!
By Cameron Dokey - May 28, 2013
Can you feel it in the air? Summer is almost here! And what better way to enjoy it than a trip to camp. Boys Camp, that is.
Please welcome this brand new series, specifically designed for beginning chapter book-reading boys. (Though really, any adventure-minded kid will have a great time at Camp Wolf Trail. No "girls keep out" signs here!) I had the very great honor to be asked to write the launch book for the series, which I entitled Zack's Story in honor of the son of my good friends Jennifer and Denis, who progressed from camper to camp counselor over the years. Then, in a happy twist of fate, the book's illustrator, Craig Orback, turned out to be from Seattle, as well. So I guess you could say it's a local affair.
Both the age range and subject matter of Zack's Story are departures for me. It's always good to stretch once in a while. So, pack your duffel, grab some snacks, and let's go have some adventures!
