Five Things for Today: June 18, 2020

Words of encouragement from The Anthem


1. The Nationals Summer Reading Program returns for another season! Children ages 6-18 who complete their local library’s summer reading program — reading just 20 minutes each day and logging it, whether it is a book, magazine, or blog — will have the opportunity to win tickets to a future Nationals game. Learn more and register here.

2. Tinkergarten, the program that usually meets in groups to encourage learning through play, is introducing a resource to help you fill your child’s summer with joy and purposeful play. Camp Tinkergarten includes eight weeks of fun activities and guiding materials. Even more, it’s free and open to all.

3. The Anthem is bringing another kind of camp to The Wharf. Camp Anthem is a new pop-up waterfront bar and restaurant with tables seating up to 6 on the District Pier, each covered by a cabana tent. Guests must be 21 or over, but children are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Reservations are required, and there is a $250 fee per cabana (approximately 40 dollars each when you attend with a group of 6), which is applied toward your food and beverage tab. There is a two-hour max at each table to allow thorough cleaning in between time slots. The rotating menu includes lighter fare, entrees, dessert, wine, beer, and specialty cocktails. It will be open Thursdays and Fridays, 4:30pm – 12:00am, and Saturdays 2pm – 12am.

4. WAMU has a round-up of Juneteenth events taking place around the DC area tomorrow.

5. I’m a little behind on this, but kudos to BAND-AID!
