Our goal at Crestwood is to give children opportunities to shine and to find their unique talents. We would like to tell you about a club program that will be offered this summer for campers entering 1st to 6th grade. Along with the staff at Write to Remember, we will be running a writing club. Read on for a description and a little about our instructor.
Write to Remember Writing Workshops inspire and strengthen writers. The summer is the perfect time to nurture writers and enhance writing skills--while having an amazing time doing so!
Campers will participate in a four session "club" during which they will be led through the process of gathering ideas, drafting, revising, editing and publishing articles, poems, interviews, or other selected genre, for “The Crestwood Heartbeat”--Crestwood Day Camp's digital magazine.
The Writing Club will be led by Mollie Newman, a lifetime camper and an elementary school teacher with 10 years of teaching experience. Mollie is thrilled to share in your child’s camp experience and bring the excitement of writing out of the classroom and into camp!.
Grab your notebook . . . and have your voice heard!
Interested campers (entering 1st to 6th grade) will be pulled out of appropriate activities to spend a period each of those days (up to 4 times over two weeks) to work with Mollie on their piece.
Interested campers (entering 3rd to 6th grade) will be pulled out of an entire half-day of camp in order to participate in an intensive writing experience. Campers will have the opportunity to brainstorm, research, conduct interviews, and draft their pieces all in one session. Some revision may be necessary in a follow-up session.
Every camper will have an opportunity to work on at least one issue of the magazine this summer.
We would like to put together a "sample" issue prior to the start of the camp, as we did last year. CLICK HERE FOR LAST YEAR'S SAMPLE ISSUE.
The theme of this issue will be "I'm So Excited". Children can submit a paragraph, a drawing, a poem, etc.
Please send your submissions to email@example.com by Monday, June 8th to be included. Please either scan your child's work and send as a .PDF or .JPG or you can type and send as a Word document. Submissions will be printed in our magazine and will include your child's first name and last initial.
The staff for the club will be here on Family Fun & Clothing Day to meet you and your child. You can sign up for the program with the club staff or by letting your Division Head or Group Leader know that you want your child to be in the program.
See you all soon,
Mark H., Mark T. and Jeff
