In this camp, you get to capture moments―a bat hitting a baseball, the dribble of a basketball, or the smack of a hockey puck―in a variety of writing styles: creative short stories, informative play-by-play or profile pieces, figurative free verse poetry. Share some of your most amazing sporting experiences and creative ideas while developing a greater sense of voice, style, and figurative language skills. Use this camp to discover a whole new way to appreciate the wonderful world of sports.
