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.

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.
