This two week summer program is designed to enhance writing in
children ages 8-17. Young writers engage in a variety of
creative writing experiences that help them develop and improve
the quality of their writing. Camp activities include
daily journal writing, age appropriate reading, and other
activities that expand the campers' writing world. Because
the camp offers a relaxed atmosphere with writing and reading
activities both indoors and outdoors, students learn more about
themselves, their peers and nature. Additionally, the
program includes field-based writing such as writing at the U.S.
Postal Museum. At the end of the camp, each camper
receives an anthology of the writings.
