Join me at Camp Wingate!
This summer, I'm going to sleep away camp, and you're invited! Join me at Camp Wingate in Quebec, Canada, for a five-day writing workshop for campers of all ages and skill levels.
Camp Wingate is a co-ed, overnight camp for ages 7-17 just 60 miles north of Montreal in Quebec, Canada. I spent many summers at Camp Wingate as a camper and a counselor, and my experiences there inspired my book Spells and Sleeping Bags!
Campers will join me during the first five days of camp for two hours of writing workshops every morning, and will learn all about the writing process — from the idea, to the outline, first draft, and revisions. By the end of the week, campers will know how to generate ideas, develop characters, and write their own stories. At the end of the summer, campers will be sent a special book featuring a story by everyone in the workshop.
Campers will spend the rest of the day enjoying regular camp activities (Swimming! Sailing! Arts & Crafts!) with their assigned bunks. Register for starter camp, first session, or full summer at Camp Wingate to be eligible, and check the box under "Sarah's Writing Workshop" to sign up. Learn more about Camp Wingate here, and my workshop here. I hope to see you there!
