7th Annual WRITE NOW Writing Camp for Students Entering Grades 4 - 9
Monday, June 20, 2011 at 9:00 AM - Friday, June 24, 2011 at 4:30 PM (EDT)
Our 7th Annual WRITE NOW Writing Camp
For students entering grades 4 - 9
WRITE NOW Writing Camp is a warm and encouraging, positive experience that both parents and students truly enjoy.
The camp features Brainstretch Exercises and Round-robin Breakout sessions in fiction, nonfiction (including essays), and poetry. We also focus on various skills and techniques that help students learn to edit and improve their writing projects.
At the end of the week, the students take home a bound book of their camp creations. It is a keepsake that is both a reference guide and a memory book.
As a unique feature, WRITE NOW's curriculum changes every year due to the high number of returning campers.
This year we're hosting our seventh annual WRITE NOW Writing Camp. We've attracted campers from 41 different schools and homeschoolers, as well. Kids come together from as far north as Evans City and as far south as Upper St. Clair to enjoy this event. We provide a unique, comfortable environment that encourages self-expression and interaction. What better way to release your child's creativity?
