Spark your creativity with new announced our Fall Camps (Oct 10-14)

NEW : Creative Writing

We want our campers to fall in love with language! Campers will learn to write various forms of poetry, including Haiku, Tanka, Free Verse, Alliteration, Black-Out Poetry, and more. They will learn story construction: plot, character, setting, theme, conflict, resolution, and POV. They will have timed writing sessions throughout the day. They will write using prompts, stream of consciousness writing, and journaling. They will write fables and short stories, work on spoken word assignments, and more. Campers will learn the five steps of the writing process: Pre-writing, drafting, revision, editing, and publishing (performing) their pieces. They will work on taking notes, brainstorming, and giving and receiving constructive feedback to and from their peers. They will incorporate new vocabulary words in their writing. We hope to instill a lifelong habit of reading and writing in your child.
