Camp Awesome is a Children's educational company based in Charlottetown, PEI, Canada. The camp was created by Gavin Hall and Sean Skerry - two old chums from the Maritimes who set out to create something fun and distinctly homegrown for all the little readers in our lives. Camp Awesome is fondly based on our shared childhood experiences at summer camp and from being involved with Scouting.
Our first self-published book 'First Day of Camp' was written by PEI Educator Sarah Dykerman and illustrated by Graphic Artist Sean Skerry.
With the help of many generous crowd-funding supporters, we printed the first edition in 2018.
To help parents and educators during Covid-19, we released dozens of free downloadable kids activity sheets, ran online colouring contests and book giveaways, and sent free hand washing posters to maritime schools and community centres.
2 brand new books - 'Lights Out' and 'Camp Counting' are set to launch in October 2020!
We're excited to be rolling out new teaching resources and classroom items for educators in the coming months - check out our Facebook page for all the latest camp bulletins.
