Creative Writing Adventure Camp combines the thrill of summer adventure with the opportunity to strengthen the skills of your young writer. Mimicking the process of their favorite authors, adventure writers will begin by searching for inspiration. Campers will take short field trips in search of experiences that spark ideas, proving that inspiration can be found all around us! At each location, adventure goers will take time to capture their surroundings and make observations, keeping their eyes and ears open for their next story! After fine tuning their ideas and working on bettering their craft over the first three days, campers will shift gears to tackle their final adventure: publishing their own piece of writing! The publishing celebration on Friday will include lemonade and a pizza party, giving each author the chance to share their work with the group.

For this five day camp, students will dive into 5 components of creative writing: idea generation, character development, setting creation, author’s voice, and publication. Activities and short field trips will connect to the day’s focus, enhancing the experience. All field trips will utilize the public spaces surrounding Maret’s campus. With revision being central to every author’s process, individual conferences and peer collaboration will provide campers with the opportunity to receive helpful feedback, learn from others, and provide an opportunity to share their writing. All levels of writers in rising grades 3-6 are welcome, but a willingness to grow as a writer is a must! Participants will bring a bag lunch and water bottle each day. Space is limited to 20 students on a first-come basis.
