|Our Junior writers will learn the basic elements of nonfiction writing by researching and building their own book about a possible future career. They will learn and practice many expository writing skills, including how to conduct research, explain their facts in an interesting way, and learn how great authors write from the heart. Students will bring home their research book at the conclusion of camp.
Our Intern & Senior writers will flex their expository writing muscles by deeply exploring the field of journalism. Students will learn about magazine and newspaper composition, explore ethics, and learn how to research, write, and publish features and human interest stories. Writers will actively participate in the publishing of their own original magazine, which you will receive at the conclusion of the summer season.
*Interns and Seniors may have some overlapping activities but Interns are in a different grouping keeping in mind the level of support they may need
|At Camp Brainy Bunch, we work with young writers to build their communication skills around audience, purpose, and voice. We will explore and consider the words of powerful authors which help to inspire our own pieces. Each camper will be supported with appropriate scafforlds designed by experienced teachers. Advanced campers will be asked to take Editor-In-Chief roles to level up our camp magazine.
|Daily Morning Meetings to build culture, lasting memories and friendships!
Brain Breaks! It's summer after all so let's PLAY! Brain Breaks allow us to transition between curriculum activities.

Fun Friday Celebrations! Every Friday we acknowledge the success of our campers and host a much deserved water day to cool off from the summer heat!
