Do you ever wonder what goes on at Creative Writing Camp?  Some folks think that campers spend 3 straight hours writing stories (a good thing, for sure!), but so many other kinds of writing happen, too.

In school most children learn that the main purpose of writing is to persuade.  During camp kids love to explore all the ways to use written language, including to entertain, surprise, explain, amuse, and delight.

Here’s a list of some of the kinds of writing that we do during camp:
