CK's Creative Writing Institute

Give your student the lead they need to achieve in the coming school year. We’ll make writing fun as we incorporate a field trip and a guest author. This camp will cover various types of writing including: narrative writing, poetry, comparison writing, short fiction and essay writing. Your camper will receive small group instruction based on their age and specific needs, while still enjoying the large group activities to inspire them. Campers will build confidence in their writing when we take creative approaches. They will learn how to clarify their ideas and express their feelings through writing; they will also learn how to include details in their writing as well as commonly used writing structures. Each day will contain a period for free-write as well as a period of re-free-write (where a Creative Kids staff member will help them edit and revise their piece). We’ll also play lots of games to get us thinking creatively, and a trip to Cinebarre will help us learn how to review a movie and a restaurant in one! A visiting author will discuss the writing process, writing inspiration, and how to create a writing routine. Give your student confidence as school quickly approaches with this creative writing workshop!
