Presented through the Department of English Language and Literature, the Writing Day Camp offers intensive and practical development in basic writing skills in combination with a full and vigorous recreational program. Students are grouped according to their school grade level, with groups averaging about 12 students each.
Total camp enrollment is limited to 78 student-campers per session. The camp director is assisted by a staff comprised of area elementary, secondary and university teachers, as well as recreational counselors. The adult-student ratio in the Writing Camp is about 1 to 8.
All student-campers eat together in the University cafeteria. Campers may purchase their lunch or bring it from home. Writing Development The writing sessions of the camp concentrate on intensive practice in the development and expression of ideas. The objective of the program is the development of skill in the articulation of thought in the sentence, the paragraph, and the short essay, as well as, by means of collaborative effort, in such creative forms as drama and fiction.
Instruction in spelling, grammar, punctuation and other basics of language usage is provided on an individual basis as needed, but not as an objective of the program. Students at all grade levels use computers extensively in the composition process, but they do not need prior experience with computers in order to do well in the program.
