Newly Re-opened Circle V Ranch Camp for Kids Ages 7-13 Has Space & Scholarships Still Available for Last Summer 2019 Session
~Traditional camp just 20 minutes from Santa Barbara offers 6 days/5 nights of summer fun for $600
Circle V Ranch campers enjoy a variety of activities, fun and fellowship during six days/five nights themed session for kids ages 7-13. Spaces and scholarships are still available for the “Talent Show Week” from August 3-8, 2019.
Ray Lopez, Director of Circle V (Vee) Ranch Camp, located across from Cachuma Lake in the Santa Ynez Valley just 20 minutes from Santa Barbara, has announced that spaces and camperships (scholarships) are only available for the summer 2019 session from Saturday, August 3 to Thursday, August 8 with the theme of Talent Show Week. Deadline to submit an application to attend is July 18, 2019.
Each Circle V Ranch Camp session is six days and five nights of traditional supervised summer fun for boys and girls ages 7 to 13. Campers enjoy activities including archery, arts & crafts, hiking, swimming in the pool, learning about nature, reading skills, painting, photography, playing baseball, basketball, ping pong, foosball, soccer, miniature golf and of course, campfires, skits and singing. There is no TV, radio or internet access to affect the experience. Campers stay in cabins and three nutritious daily meals served family-style in the Dining Lodge are not only for food but also for camaraderie and fellowship.
Circle V Ranch Camp was founded by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Los Angeles in 1945 and has been located on 30 acres in the Los Padres National Forest in Santa Barbara County since 1990. In summer 2016, the camp hosted more than 1,000 children for this time-honored experience. Circle V Ranch Camp has reopened this summer for the first time since the July 8, 2017 Whittier Wildfire forced the closure due to damage to the health lodge, craft cabin and water treatment facility which have since been repaired.
The Circle V Ranch Camp fee for six days/ five nights including lodging, all meals, activities, recreation and supervised fun is $600 per child. “Camperships” (scholarship funds made by individuals and groups’ donations) are available for qualified campers and reduce fees to as low as $100 per child.

Story Monsters Ink® Celebrates Five-Year Anniversary
CHANDLER, AZ (July 2019)—Story Monsters Ink® magazine, the literary resource for parents, teachers and librarians, is celebrating a big milestone next month. August marks the fifth anniversary since Story Monsters LLC published its first issue.
President and publisher Linda F. Radke always dreamed of publishing a magazine during her 30-plus years in the publishing industry, but struggled to find the right message to share. That all changed with the creation of the Story Monster mascot, initially as a puppet, then a lovable, huggable 6-foot tall mascot to inspire children to love to read. As a book publisher, Radke saw first-hand how people of all ages reacted to the performance puppets she created to complement her authors’ books.
“With Story Monster, I wanted to find a way to take reading from feeling like a chore to an activity that children love,” says Radke. “It was amazing to see the reactions we got wherever we went with him. Pure joy is the best way to describe it.”
At last, Radke found the message she wanted to share, and Story Monsters Ink was born. Since its beginning, the magazine’s mission has been to make reading fun by bringing the best news in books to parents, educators, librarians, and book lovers. The first issue was a 20-page newsletter and now, it has flourished into a full-fledged digital magazine that reaches international audiences of all ages. Under the helm of editor-in-chief, Cristy Bertini, each issue features columns by the world’s bestselling author James Patterson and Scholastic Book Clubs president Judy Newman, as well as author profiles, book reviews, movie reviews and much more. With teachers in mind, each issue also provides online access to classroom questions to use with students.
“Somewhere in my childhood I must have done something right,” says Radke. “I am so very blessed to be surrounded by such a dedicated and talented team of professionals to reach this important milestone. The wonderful content that is produced each month would never happen without them.”
Published monthly and supported primarily by its advertisers, Story Monsters Ink has consciously provided articles and columns that educate and inspire and has tackled tough subjects such as learning disabilities, bullying and eco-awareness. The magazine has featured celebrities such as the late Stan Lee, Kobe Bryant, LeVar Burton, Nathan Lane, Julian Lennon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kelly Clarkson, Kate DiCamillo, Jason Reynolds and Jeff Kinney, to name a few.
“When thinking about how the magazine has evolved over the past five years, I am truly humbled by the diversity and breadth of the folks that we’ve had the privilege of featuring,” says Radke. “Heroes come in all shapes, sizes and ages. I am thrilled to discover that so many celebrities who I have long admired are also lifelong supporters of literacy.”
Digital subscriptions are available through the Story Monsters Ink app, Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon.com for $4.99 for 12 issues per year. Teachers can subscribe for free by visiting https://www.storymonsters.com/store/subscription and entering the code STORYMONSTERTEACHERS at checkout. Authors or publishers seeking book review consideration or organizations interested in advertising to a targeted market while supporting literacy should contact Cristy Bertini at firstname.lastname@example.org or (413) 687-0733.
