Edina Summer Computer Camp: WRITING MAGIC--The Art of Creative Writing: Gr 4-8
A unique opportunity for young authors to explore the magic of writing. Campers will explore multiple genres, write for different audiences and purposes, all while gaining confidence and skills in their writing. Using the writing process, campers will develop unique characters, conflicts, and find their voice. We will also explore digital opportunities for young authors, including websites for writing prompts, skill development, blogging, and self-publishing. An end of the week celebration will include an opportunity for campers to share a favorite piece from the week. Campers must have basic experience with computers (how to turn on a computer, navigate the web, and developing typing skills).
Jennifer Harrits is returning to Edina Summer Computer Camp. Over those 19 years, technology has changed rapidly, forcing her to change the content and methods of her camp. One thing that hasn’t changed is her passion for teaching in fun and creative ways. During the school year, Jenny teaches 7th grade Language Arts at South View and enjoys spending time with her dogs, husband, and daughter.
