Adventures in Writing Camp is excited to come to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Redwood City 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!
As a note, we group campers by grade level. If your child is attending with a friend and they are entering the same grade, they will be grouped together.
MEET THE TEAM
Elizabeth Casey, Site Administrator
Liz is thrilled to return to Adventures in Writing for the third year. She is a high school English teacher during the school year. She completely understands the importance of fostering an appreciation of reading and writing in the elementary school years. As an actress and theatre major, she includes any dramatic elements whenever and wherever possible into her teaching. She has recently returned to the Bay Area from SoCal and loves exploring her new home. This is her 15th year teaching and is excited to work with fellow adventurers and mini-adventurers in creating new books and dreaming new dreams!
Josh Tazman Reinier, Entertainment Ranger
Josh has always loved making imaginary worlds. When he was in second grade, he wrote a series of short stories about the Legornegs, furry humanoid creatures that had bows and arrows and could control things with their minds. He even dressed up as one for Halloween! On that note, he still designs his own Halloween costumes, and his love of creating characters has led to a series of musical theater roles, from Bobby Strong in “Urinetown” to Dan in “Next to Normal,” as well as a performance as the Second Spirit in Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute.” Josh has combined his passion for words with a lifelong passion for music—he’s been singing, playing piano, and trying out any instrument he can get his hands on for as long as he can remember. He’s been writing songs since 6th grade, has sung jazz at national festivals in New York, Montreal, and even Salzburg, and currently is learning classical composition in college. In addition, Josh has a love of teaching, believing that an inspiring education is the key to a meaningful life. He’s worked for the past 2 summers at the Spirit Rock Meditation Center, where he’s taught mindfulness to kids. He attends Oberlin College and Conservatory, earning a double degree in English and Composition. He’s excited to be bringing together his interests in creating, learning, and teaching at Adventures in Writing!
