The Great Valley Writing Camp is coming to Ripon.
Students from as young as kindergarten – this includes TK, as well – to all levels of high school can better improve, develop or even enhance their writing for various story forms.
The sessions will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. beginning on Monday, June 11, at Ripon High, 301 N. Acacia Ave.
Cost is $205 per student with large family discounts and scholarships being available.
The computer labs are often used for the two-week writing camps. It’s here that students can develop their skill through using a variety of teacher-guided activities.
Each day, the young writers will be able to interact with personal writing mentors, explore multimedia technology, and collaborate with peers.
They’ll also blend traditional writing methods with digital publishing – from here, students can learn to recognize their strengths while tackling writing difficulties as they polish, present and publish their works.
The Great Valley Writing Camp is designed to help all students become more confident and capable writers.
The Great Valley Writing Camps are sponsored by Great Valley Writing Project at California State University, Stanislaus.
GVWP is a non-profit, education-based organization designed that helps students in learning and achieving by improving their writing skills in classroom.
In order to accomplish that goal, GVWP provides professional development partnerships for schools and districts with numerous courses for teachers, family literacy events and programs for young writers.
Many local teachers take part in the summer writing camps – in turn, they receive camp credit via CSU Stanislaus.
