Kay (kay23) | 60 comments I go to a summer camp for people with disabilities.

I'm looking for a total of five books around 300 pages each that take place in summer camp or a summer camp for people with disabilities. A total of twelve suggestions would be good from each person as I'll have options.

Must be children's books

Thanks

Barbara Well there is an older book called "The Horsemasters" by Don Stanford, about young people at an equestrian academy.

Camp Zombie, Megan Stine
Summer Camp Creeps, Tim Schoch
The Goats, Brock Cole

SamSpayedPI | 2069 comments Not quite a "children's book" but suitable for older children: City Boy. It takes place in early 20th century in the Bronx and in a summer camp.

Just Plain Maggie: standard "girl struggles with homesickness and an unfriendly bunkmate but ends up having a fun summer" fare.

Anna | 509 comments I think The Lightning Thief starts in a summer camp.


message 11: by Kay (new)

Kay (kay23) | 60 comments it does but I've read Percy Jackson

Pamela Love | 1134 comments Another vote for The Horsemasters by Don Stanford, if you can find it. It's about young adults (the main character is eighteen) but doesn't have any "adult" content, and I read it as a fourth grader. It's still one of my favorite books. The Horsemasters

Kay (kay23) | 60 comments not my type of book, sadly

Rainbowheart | 19026 comments Are you looking for any horse camps or just horse summer camps for kids with disabilities?

Kay (kay23) | 60 comments horse camps
summer camps
camps for people with disabilities

three different types of books

Lily | 23 comments Mandy by Julie Andrews, is a very simple yet sweet and exciting, it is about a orphan that finds a abandoned cottage and makes it a hideaway place during the summer

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 5198 comments These I've read, and they're good:
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
One of the Family

These I haven't:
Horse Crazy
Horseback Summer

Sorry for any that aren't 300 pages long. I doubt there are many kids' books about summer camp that are that long.

What doesn't appeal to you about it?


message 20: by Rosa (new)

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 5198 comments No Boys Allowed is the first in the Camp Sunnyside Friends series.
Here are the books that were mentioned but not linked:
The Cornerstone: A Novel
Camp Zombie
Summer Camp Creeps
The Goats
Mandy (wonderful book, but not about summer camp)

Is No Boys Allowed humor?


message 23: by Rosa (new)

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 5198 comments I don't know for sure, but I'd assume so.

Kay (kay23) | 60 comments Still looking


message 25: by Paige (new)

Paige | 690 comments When you say "Must be children's books," what age range are we talking about here?


message 27: by SamSpayedPI (new)

SamSpayedPI | 2069 comments In addition to the previously mentioned City Boy and Just Plain Maggie, I thought of Laura's Luck. It's the second in a series but stands alone pretty well.


message 28: by Paige (last edited Feb 14, 2022 08:38AM) (new)

Paige | 690 comments I really think I could do this better if I knew the age range of the campers, but here's a few oldies but goodies that I remember passing around at camp that are at lest in the neighborhood of 300 pages:

Donna Parker at Cherrydale 282 pages
Cherry Ames, Camp Nurse 224 pages
Sal Fisher at Girl Scout Camp 218 pages
Maida's Little Camp 214 pages
Five in a Tent 200 pages


They were old then, and none of them are 300 pages, but, I hope it helps.
I tried to think of material that would come close to that 300 page mark. It would be easier to come up with some clean, relatively contemporary pieces that involve horse camps/summer camps if it wasn't for that 300 page per book goal.

I cant read books above a 6th grade reading level

No, Kay is looking for book suggestions, not a specific book.


message 32: by Paige (last edited Feb 22, 2022 02:07PM) (new)

Paige | 690 comments I may be off base with this next recommendation. Iit's a series about a girl at horse camp, but none of the books are anywhere near 300 pages, more like 121 or so, but I'm still going to suggest it:
Horseback Summer first book in series
