Camp Pageturner: Summer Reading & Writing at the CLC

Camp Pageturner - Summer 2024

At Camp Pageturner, children spend each week exploring their passions through a literacy lens. Each day includes all the summer fun you’d expect, like field games or trips to the pool. It also includes lots of opportunities to have fun reading and writing. Campers will take part in fun and motivating reading and writing activities based on that week’s theme. Participants will read books, use their imaginations, and take part in all sorts of creative writing.

The CLC is also offering:

  • Science Collaboration with KEEPERS & Leitzel Center: Children will explore inventing, engineering, and math AND reading and writing! This option is available only for a 'mini-camp' session July 1-3. To participate, enroll your child in the morning KEEPERS session and the afternoon only Camp Pageturner session below. Students will be walked from KEEPERS to Camp Pageturner by KEEPERS staff. The CLC is also offering a full-day option of Camp Pageturner July 1-3.
  • 1:1 Literacy Support: This summer, we’re offering our 1:1 Literacy Support option during camp hours! Students can meet with a CLC Program Leader for 4 30-minute sessions. Activities might include: word chains, word ladders, phonics instruction, riddles, jokes, assisted reading, and writing activities. Meetings will take place during the camp day and there is an additional cost of $50. All slots are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. 1:1 Literacy Support is not available during the short week of July 1-3. This option will appear in your shopping cart after a session has been added. A student participating in 1:1 Literacy Support must also be enrolled in the corresponding session of Camp Pageturner.
  • Extended Care: Camp Pageturner offers Extended Care from 4:00-5:15pm for an additional cost of $40 ($24 for the July 1-3 week). This option will appear in your shopping cart after a session has been added. A student enrolled in Extended Care must also be enrolled in the corresponding session of Camp Pageturner. Pick-up from Extended Care will occur no later than 5:15pm. Any camper not picked up by 5:15pm will incur an additional $10 fee for every five minutes past 5:15pm.

Each week on Friday, we invite families to attend a showcase or performance at 3:30pm. Camp will still end at the regular time.

Online Registration Instructions: please review before enrolling for the best outcome. Family Accounts are recommended for enrolling multiple children from one family in any UNH Youth Program. If you already have an account in our system, you will be asked to log into either a Family or Student Account. Be sure you know which type of account you have and know your username and password. We recommend you attempt to log into the Student or Family account before enrollment opens as this will minimize difficulty and time while enrolling. Email youth.programs@unh.edu if you require assistance recovering your account information. Do not create a new account if you have one already.

If you don't have an account already, you can set up an account at any time, even before you begin the registration process. When you create a new account, the email address provided in the profile should be that of a parent/legal guardian, not the participating student.

Account balances are due by May 1, but can be paid before that date. It is the family responsibility to make a timely final payment. Please be aware of our Summer Youth Program Payment & Refund Procedures

To request a drop from a Youth Program, email youth.programs@unh.edu or contact the Program Manager. Please include the full name of the participant and clearly state the camp and session(s) to be dropped.

Important: 

CampDoc: UNH has partnered with CampDoc to quicken the enrollment process. Enrollments and payments will still be done here through our current enrollment system, but no registration questions will be required at that time. Within a few days of enrolling, the email provided in the Student/Family Account will receive an email prompting completion of the registration questions.

It is important that a parent/guardian respond to the CampDoc email and complete the registration questions promptly. Families who enrolled a child through our current enrollment system in 2023 will likely already have a CampDoc account. A parent/guardian will need to log into the student’s account and complete any necessary questions for this program. A participant’s CampDoc profile must be 100% complete before they can attend the program.

For more information, review our “CampDoc” page.
