The goal of the Campo Parents Book Club is to give our Campo parent community the opportunity to gather, either in person or virtually, and discuss books of mutual interest. The Book Club meets twice during the academic year and the books typically center around the topic of parenting young adults. Reading the book is encouraged but not a requirement for participation. We also encourage creative thinking, enthusiasm for new ideas, a willingness to share experiences and listen to those of others. Observers are also welcome to attend.
Any questions, contact our lead, Raphaelle Wirstrom.
