* Please don't let this age guideline scare you off. If your younger child can read and write and wants to attend, s/he's very welcome and will do just fine! Our activities are geared to accommodate a range of ages simultaneously. There is no prereading for this camp; we'll just be reading short excerpts we hand out in the workshop, as models and inspiration.

Making great books a memorable, hands-on experience for kids!
LitWits makes literature an experience kids won’t forget -- which leads to incidental, natural learning. Our workshops are joyful immersions in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and feel of a single pre-read book. Learning happens through prop-based discussion and creative activities, including drama, art, writing, history, geography, science, and more!
When children learn with their senses, their enthusiasm and curiosity increase, and teachable moments abound. LitWits has been seizing those moments since 2010.
