Youth Writing Camp

The Ohio Writing Project is offering a Youth Writing Camp for students entering 5th - 8th grades again this summer, July 17-21. It's a camp full of engaging activities that inspire writing in many genres along with learning from authors and sharing their own writing. The writers also spend time swimming, playing frisbee golf, eating pizza, and enjoying other campus and camp-like activities. It is a camp for kids who like to write and create, and it is a joy to watch them grow in their writing and confidence. I've been leading this camp for over ten years and I never grow tired of watching the campers write and share with such enthusiasm.

Since 1990, Camp Invention has taken summer fun and transformed it from ordinary to extraordinary!

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Edwin H. Greene Intermediate School is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades 1st-6th. It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. The week begins on June 5, 2017 with Chris Gutermuth serving as Director of the Launch program!

Here is how young innovators will be spending their time:


  • Engaging creative thinking to design and build their own duct tape creations

  • Experiencing the power of rocket science by building and launching rubber band rockets

  • Exploring aerodynamics to blast water rockets made from plastic bottles more than 50 feet in the air

  • Taking apart nonworking machines and devices to investigate their inner operations


All activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover and achieve while having fun!


Local educators will facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students will serve as Leadership Interns ensuring that one program team member is in place for every eight children.
