Adventures in Writing Camp is excited to return to Brighton Hall this summer with all new curriculum! This location will have first grade, elementary, and middle school programs! Our team of credentialed teachers, musicians and college students is ready to help new campers build confidence and fall in love with writing, and help returning campers continue to develop as writers!
MEET THE TEAM
Robin Jankiewicz, Site Administrator
Robin Jankiewicz is returning for even more writing adventures! She enjoys writing short stories, and can often be found hunting for novels in Seattle, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara, or wherever massive quantities of good literature are consumed. She’s eager to watch youngsters grow into the novelists, journalists, and screenwriters they aspire to be!
Ariel Patt, Writing Ranger (Middle School), Writing Ranger (Middle School)
Ariel is delighted to be joining the AIW team as a Writing Ranger this summer!
From an early age, Ariel was fascinated by the musicality of language and storytelling. She discovered her passion for creative writing in 1st grade and has been putting pencil to paper as a creative outlet ever since!
Ariel is a credentialed teacher with over four years of classroom experience at the upper elementary level. She earned her Masters degree in Education from Mount St. Mary’s University and currently teaches 5th grade at an independent school in West Hollywood. Ariel loves helping students throughout every stage of the writing process, but she is particularly passionate about helping new writers hone their individual style and author’s voice.
In her free time, Ariel enjoys baking desserts for family and friends, attending concerts, and volunteering at her local animal shelter.
Whitney Williams, Writing Ranger (1st Grade)
“Let’s go on an adventure!”
Whitney Williams has been teaching since she started helping her five little brothers with the alphabet. For the last thirteen years she has taught kids of all ages, inside and outside the classroom, as a teacher and tutor. She has her bachelors from UC Berkeley and is finishing a masters in multicultural and multilingual education at CSU Northridge. When she’s not teaching, she’s playing with her seventeen nieces and nephews, volunteering, reading, growing vegetables and flowers – and writing. She can’t wait to write with you, this summer, and hear all your fun ideas!
Elizabeth Rangel, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Elizabeth is an extremely passionate person. Some of her passions include animals, reading, Disney movies (her favorite is Ratatouille), music, and sports – but most of all, she is passionate about helping others! Elizabeth always tries to devote her time to volunteering, tutoring, and any other way that she can help people. This is her first year at Adventures in Writing Camp, and she can’t wait to meet everyone!
