It's never too early to save the date for the 2018 UK Summer Camps Fair!
We hope to see you on Friday, March 23 at the Hilary J. Boone Center. 

Book Exchange
Bring a book - take a book! In honor of March being National Reading Month, we are offering a book exchange at the UK Summer Camps Fair. Bring up to 10 book(s) that you no longer want to the fair and take a book(s) in return. Books should be for children and teens. This is a great way to get new reading material without spending any money! 

Donate to Big Blue Pantry
Attendees of the fair will have an opportunity to donate to the Big Blue Pantry, which serves UK students who are experiencing food insecurity or hunger. Suggested items to donate include: easy mac/macaroni, pasta, pasta sauce, granola bars, cereal, rice, snack foods, canned fruit, oatmeal, fruit juices (jugs), canned meats, instant mashed potatoes, and Hamburger Helper. Non-food items such as toilet paper, paper towels, and deodorant can also be donated.
