Hey, kids! Let your imagination run wild!

Web Exclusives


If you’re the parent of a student who will be entering grades five through eight next year, you know summer break is just around the corner.

If your student is interested in creative writing, he or she may enjoy the Great American Writers’ Camp, to be held on-campus at Wake Forest July 9-14. The one-week day day camp gives local students the chance to let their imagination run wild while learning and practicing the art of writing.

With a focus on creativity, students learn new ways to express themselves and their ideas. Camp activities are tailored to be fun (it is a summer camp after all) so students don’t ever feel like they are doing school work. In addition, writing projects are in balanced with field trips and guest speakers so the young writers can see and learn about the many places writing can take them outside the classroom.

The Great American Writers’ Camp, LLC was established in 2011 by Catherine Coelho (’10, MA ’12) and is the culmination of several years’ worth of creative-learning ideas. The program is supported by the Department of Communication and was established with a grant from the Center for Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship.
