Camp Director, Paula Ruesch
Paula Ruesch has devoted many years to promoting a love of reading in children. She has served on the board of the Children’s Literature Association of Utah and is currently on the Advisory Board for Utah Valley University’s Forum on Engaged Reading. She is also a member of the International Literacy Association. Most importantly, she's a long-time lover of children and the books written just for them.
As a school librarian, she developed the Newbery Reader Award program. To receive the Newbery Reader Award, children read 50 Newbery Award winning books and wrote a report on each. Paula has inspired dozens of children to reach that lofty goal in elementary school.
Her enthusiasm for children's literature is contagious and she is known for her ability to inspire children to love to read.
