A Writing Adventure Camp

“Explode” into Writing

Ages 5 to 13

Capture the Joy of Writing this summer!

Rising 1st graders will develop storytelling skills, campers entering grades 2-5 write an eBook, and campers entering grades 6-8 create a blog about any topic they choose.


Renaissance brings the writing experience alive with songs, games and technology.

The BEST Writing Experience is a FUN Writing Experience and involves much more than just pencil and paper or typing. Ideas that can be transferred into writing through innovative techniques give a child the key to writing success.

The excitement about writing is generated when kids learn to have fun while they write. Writing”explodes” in this unique summer camp  when kids not only learn valuable skills but are able to transfer their creative thoughts into words and even ebooks. Valuable skills are learned when kids are active participants in their own writing process.

We use the basic constructionist theory of education in our writing camps. Unlike classrooms, where the teacher (“expert”) pours knowledge into passive students, who wait like empty vessels to be filled,  Renaissance engages students to participate in a variety of fun, active ways in their own writing process.

Using a fun, creative approach campers will be able to approach writing with confidence because writing skills will be internalized easily using our kinesthetic, auditory, and visual method of teaching.

Instruction is done through music, games, videos and technology. Campers engage in learning activities that give them positive, confidence-building experiences with writing.

 From sports and video games to princesses and ponies, we’re less concerned with the topic and more focused on your child having fun with writing while applying the new skills he or she is learning at camp.  Whether your child loves to write or hates to write, we’ve got something to help him or her become a better, more confident writer.
