Creative Writing Summer Camp

PLEASE NOTE: Due to numerous family commitments, summer camps will not run in 2023. I apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause. Please check back for summer camp options in 2024. Happy summer!

~ Creative Writing Camp meets from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, for 3, 4, or 5 weekdays during camp week. Each camp program focuses on one genre of storytelling such as detective stories, fairy tales, or fantasy writing. Camps are held in late June and July.

Day 3: Develop Your Dialogue

Day 5: Share Your Story
