Fairytales and Nursery Rhymes are filled with magic and royalty and usually a life lesson or two. During the camp week, take the opportunity to explore some favorites, read some fractured fairy tales for fun, and search around for some stories you might not know yet. With this camp theme, you’ll find a bunch of great activities that go so well with the characters and themes in some of our suggested stories.
