First and foremost, we hope that this message finds you and your family in good health. We have received many questions about AIW Camp’s plan to navigate the COVID-19 outbreak. In the video and paragraphs below, you will find answers to some of the most common questions.
Will AIW Camp offer on-campus camps this summer?
While we are NOT ready to “throw in the towel” on on-campus activities this summer, we’ve also heard from many of you that you won’t feel safe having your kids in a physical camp setting without a vaccine. Others have told us you would prefer to wait and see what is possible under the social distancing rules in place at the time of your scheduled program.
As a result, we have continued to prepare for on-campus programming this summer, while simultaneously designing, piloting, revising, and implementing a lower-priced, online camp alternative. It’s an alternative that brings the magic and learning of Adventures in Writing Camp to the safety of your home. We’re excited to share this video introduction to AIW Camp Online!
What does AIW Camp Online look like?
AIW Camp Online is offered as both a Half Day Plus (9am-12pm daily, with 2 hours of additional afternoon 1-1 meetings with a teacher per session ) and full-day program (9am -3pm). Like our on-campus programs, campers work with credentialed teachers and college students to create eBooks (elementary) and blogs (middle school). The social component of camp is VERY important to us. Campers will be grouped in “cabins” (~7 campers), and campers may sign-up to be in a cabin with their friends. The online experience is designed as a virtual summer camp, not just classes online. You can read more about the program here.
