The Author’s Club Summer Camp

June 17 @ 10:00 am - June 21 @ 3:00 pm

$395

Do you have an aspiring young writer in your home? A storyteller? A book lover? This is the summer camp for them! Join us for an opportunity to build writing skills, meet like-minded kids, and experience the accomplishment of producing a finished story!

WHAT: For kids entering 4th to 6th grade, this weeklong camp will include fun and challenging activities to guide the young writers through creating their own short story. Campers will take the journey of storytelling through every stage: from conceptualization to execution.

HOW: We will use our surroundings, both in the bookstore and outdoors, to find inspiration for sensory details. Each day will consist of refining technique through writing exercises, games, and reading works of published children’s book authors. Students will regularly workshop their writing with the group to help them become more reflective writers. There will also be time for crafts, so the authors can create their own illustrations, covers, and bound books.

FUN: While writing is the focus, we will also be playing lots of games and getting outside! Movement will be included each day through morning games and lunchtime outdoor adventures.

Kids will unleash their imagination through:

creating characters
developing plot
crafting descriptive settings
generating interesting dialogue
making creative book covers

Please direct all questions about The Author’s Club to [email protected]. Limited scholarships available.
