Camana Bay News Nuggets: July/August

18 July 2022


The popular children's activity that encourages reading and the appreciation of books has resumed. The event is now billed "Storytime in Gardenia" because it takes place on the lawn of Camana Bay's Gardenia Court behind Next Chapter.

Storytime at Gardenia takes place the first Sunday of every month starting at 10 a.m. and is free to the public. No reservations are required.

Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket along and settle in on the lawn. Each Storytime event includes a reading of three children's books that can spark children's imaginations.

By attending, children can earn a free reusable book bag by picking up a "Rockin' Reader" punch card at Next Chapter and having it punched there every time they attend a Storytime event. Once they collect four punches, they can redeem the punch card for a Rockin' Reader book bag.

The next Storytime in Gardenia is on 7 August.
