Campfire Storytime on the Happiness Hub is a Hit!

The Happiness Hub is an exciting initiative of Camp Quality, created to stay connected to Camp Quality kids and families online and to share Camp Quality positivity with all Australians.

Award winning Australian kids’ authors have joined in on the fun with the likes of Andy Griffiths and John Heffernan reading their books for the Happiness Hub. Andy Griffith’s 117-Storey Treehouse was a hit with almost 10,000 views!

Not only have the videos been enjoyed far and wide, but over 50 books have been given away through the competitions running every fortnight and Camp Quality’s Christmas ‘Big Book Giveaway’.

Seven-year-old Novalie won the Big Book Giveaway with her fabulous acrostic poem -  

"Right before bed
Escape
And
Dream
I'm learning
New things and
Going places."

Some Camp Quality families have reached out to share the love of reading on the Happiness Hub.

"We love being read to by guests on Camp Quality so thank you for all you have done to keep us happily entertained this year through the pandemic. We really have missed our bookstores and library this year. But having Camp Quality bring us reading time has truly helped us so much and we are very grateful. Laughter is the best medicine!" – Eldershaw family

"I love reading because it's something I love to do to distract me while I’m in hospital or for each medical appointment. Also, as I'm just learning to read it is very special moment for me to share a special time with my mummy and daddy and imagine sometimes, we are in the book. Plus, the story time with Camp Quality is extra special when I have my eye surgeries. The world is an open book full of adventures" – Sophie, age 7

Home to kids’ activities, book readings and wellbeing resources for adults, the Happiness Hub is a hit, not just with Camp Quality families, but families all around Australia.

So, checkout the Happiness Hub and get involved in the fun!
