Developing strong writing skills is the primary goal of this fun & creative camp where students examine fiction, nonfiction, poetry and analytical essay writing.  Using best practices from Lucy Caulkin's Reader's and Writer's workshops, campers will use their imaginations to create well-thought out and engaging pieces to share with others.

  • Behind the Mask: Superheroes Revealed

  • Heroes & Villains
