Our Wild and Precious Lives: Virtual Summer Camp Offering
The poet Mary Oliver asks us "What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" Together, we'll explore our creative selves through story, poetry, music, movement, and crafts--let's see how big our dreams can grow when we are supported by other writers! How can our powerful dreams change the world? For this virtual camp experience, we ask that writers have their own space, private if possible, to spend the duration of each day's two-hour session, and that an adult be present elsewhere in the home to support and encourage your writer (though not as a participant yourself). Intentionality will be maintained virtually through our regular WWf(a)C practices. Craft and writing prompt packets will be available for pickup and/or email prior to the start of camp!

Our week-long summer camps, for young people in 4th-12th grades and young adults 18-22, combine the art of writing and other modes of artistic enrichment to enhance self-esteem and build skills in creative self-expression. Programs are designed to help strengthen participants' authentic voices, develop their ability to speak out through writing and community-building, and deepen their belief in their own creative intelligence.
To support the health and creativity of our young writers and their families, our 2020 Summer Camp Sessions are now exclusively Virtual, with appropriately modified schedules and activities for each age group that maintain our focus on creativity and community-building. These programs, facilitated on the Zoom platform, run on the same scheduled week of camp, with condensed online hours Monday through Friday, as well as reduced fees. Themes and facilitators for each camp will remain the same. Intentionality will be maintained virtually through our regular WWf(a)C practices. Craft and writing prompt packets will be available for pickup and snail mail/email prior to the start of camp! We can't wait to see you this summer!
In the event a class is cancelled or rescheduled due to lack of enrollment, students will be notified as soon as possible and will be given the option to receive a full credit for a future class or a full refund. All credits must be used within one (1) year of receipt.
