Young authors will practice a variety of styles (poetry, fictional stories, true stories, essays, skits, etc.) under the direction of experienced teachers from the region, who will serve as writing coaches, consultants and as traditional classroom instructors.Two weeks before camp, families will be emailed camp details with more information about check-in, drop-off/pick-up, parking, daily schedule, activities, permission slips, etc. 

DATE: June 11-15, 2018
Cost: $130
