Adventures in Writing Camp is excited to return to South School 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.

Emily Stack, eBook Ranger
Hi there! This is Emily's first year as a Ranger after three years of being an Adventure Guide. She recently graduated from the University of California at Davis with a B.A. in English - Literature, Criticism, and Theory, where she specialized in Shakespeare studies and wrote about everything from Renaissance agriculture to theater costumes. When she's not in the classroom, she can be found practicing her French and Irish (Bonjour! Dia dhuit!), laboring over graduate school applications, hiking, romping around the beach with her dog, gardening, and re-reading "Macbeth" for the umpteenth time. She's excited to be teaching writing this summer and is looking forward to sharing her love of language and stories with campers!
