Course Detail: PER302 - Appleseed Writing Project Summer Youth Writing Camps (Elementary School)


This camp is open to students entering 4th, 5th or 6th grade in Fall 2020.

Students will be guided through engaging activities and collaboration in a supportive environment, starting with choosing a topic, leading into sustained writing time, followed by revision, editing, publishing, and sharing. Students will emerge with a better understanding of the writing process and how and how to use that understanding in a variety of writing contexts.

For more information, visit the Appleseed Writing Project website at, or contact Cheri Pruitt, AWP's Youth Camp Coordinator at (260) 710-3418 or Online registration is not available for this camp. Registration deadline is June 10.

NOTE: For middle school students, a teacher's note and signature are required.

The 2020 Summer Youth Writing Camps are available to students in grades 4 through 6 and will culminate with an open house reading event where students will present their writings to the public. No previous creative writing experience is necessary - only a desire to write and willingness to participate in the daily activities.

Camps meet at the PFW Campus with transportation provided by parents or caregivers.
