The camp theme this summer is Finding Inner Peace. Students attending Young Writers Camp will have the opportunity to grow as mindful writers. Led by licensed teachers, campers will read age-appropriate mentor texts and receive instruction on key elements of writing, including voice, evidence, characterization, and style. Fridays will feature an open-mic session for campers to read their best work. Families and friends will be invited to join the celebration. Campers will also select their favorite pieces to be featured in a published anthology. Each family will receive one free copy and additional copies will be available for purchase online.
