2021 Summer Camp Information


February 6, 2021

Crazy times. The shop has been closed to browsing for almost eleven months. Yet … we’re still in business (!!!) thanks to the continued support of this wonderful community who still call us and email us and go online and order from us.

We don’t know when things will return to somewhat normal, but it could happen this summer. As such, we’re preparing (an abbreviated) summer camp schedule.

If you have any questions, please contact me. dave@littleshopofstories.com

With thanks,

Everyone at Little Shop of Stories


We love summer.

Summer is magical! Everyone should have wondrous memories of their childhood summers and Little Shop of Stories strives to be a part of creating them. We love hosting weekly camps – most of which are book related — and filling the shop with the extraordinary sounds of kids doing kid things. We love making books come alive, and we love spending time with your kids.

Here are some things to know about our camps:

Folks who donated their 2020 deposits or held their deposits will have an opportunity to register starting on February 8 at 10 a.m. Open enrollment will begin on February 15 at 10 a.m.


In-Store Camps

  • Camps are dependent on a safe environment existing for everyone. We will follow CDC recommendations. Individuals running the camps will have to have undergone both rounds of vaccine.
  • Campers will be required to wear masks.
  • Little Shop will take reasonable safety measures. Specifics will have to be determined at a later date. While these measures will include efforts at physical distancing and we are limiting the number of campers to 12 each week (as opposed to as many as 24), we will not always be able to maintain six feet of separation.
  • Camps run from 9am-4pm every day.
  • We WILL NOT be providing snacks this year; kids are required to bring their own lunches, snacks, and water bottles.
  • All of our camps take place in our upstairs loft here at the shop, but we will take walking field trips around the square (more frequently than in past years) and to Ebster pool (if feasible).
  • All in-store camps cost $350.
  • Once again each of our in-store camps will be peanut (and tree nut) free. Some of our campers have serious allergies and we feel that this is the most effective means of addressing this.
  • A deposit of $150 will be required at the time of registration.
  • A balance of $200 will be required on or prior to the first day of camp.
  •  Should Little Shop or the camper cancel the in-store camp, the camper will receive a Camp in a Box! No deposits will be refunded. If the balance has been paid, then $200 will be refunded.
  • For more information on Little Shop of Stories (including sessions, cancellations or refunds), call (404) 373-6300 or email us at info@littleshopofstories.com.

Virtual Camps

  • We ran Virtual Comics Camp and Virtual D&D Camp last summer, and they were great!
  • Comics Camp runs from 9am-4pm every day.
  • D&D Camp will be held over multiple weeks, two or three days a week in 3 or 4 hour sessions, until the adventure is finished. Scheduling will depend on how many kids sign up.
  • All virtual camps cost $350.
  • A box of materials will be delivered to the campers’ residences 1-3 days prior to the start of camp.
  • Cancellations made prior to May 1, 2020 will be refunded $300.
  • Cancellations made prior to three weeks before the first day of camp will be refunded $250.
  • Cancellations made within three weeks before the first day of camp will not receive a refund unless we are successfully able to find a replacement camper.
  • For more information on Little Shop of Stories (including sessions, cancellations or refunds), call (404) 373-6300 or email us at info@littleshopofstories.com.

Camp in a Box

  • Camps in a Box consists of books, games and crafts that are themed to the camp.
  • Each box is filled with books and activities to enjoy on your own and is not an interactive experience like our Virtual Camps.
  • Each Camp in a Box will be available for pick up as early as June 1st. We will contact you for specific dates.
  • All Camp in a Box camps cost $150.
  • No refunds will be granted.
  • For more information on Little Shop of Stories (including sessions, cancellations or refunds), call (404) 373-6300 or email us at info@littleshopofstories.com.
