Classes and Camps

We have never seen our son so interested in creating. He is engaged and excited about his story. He can’t wait to get online with the publishing company authors and watch the weekly videos. Thank you for making the pivot during these crazy times!

Aspiring Authors

Write, Illustrate and Create Your Own Book

Ages 8-14

Using a unique two brain approach students will be inspired to write and “publish” their own book. This is a fun and challenging adventure where each student will be an author, editor, and artist “hired” by the publishing company to create their masterpieces. Students will learn how to use the elements of story building, revision to “make the pictures clearer”, and editing to captivate their readers through the written word and then enhance their illustrations to make their words come alive.

This course includes engaging video instruction combined with fun LIVE interactive sessions in community with encouraging instructors and peers. We will participate in activities and share/respond throughout the creative development process, as well as receive editing of each author’s story by our professional educators before they finish their final draft for print. This is a great course to spend tons of independent time creating your very own amazing content and brilliant illustrations during the long summer days.


Writing the Right Way

An Aspiring Writer’s Virtual Adventure!

Ages 8-14

Through fun, inspiring and challenging activities writers will explore the worlds of authors, journalists, poets and more. They will learn the elements of story building and reporting and how to critically look at their work to create mesmerizing, memorable stories, articles and other written communication which will captivate readers and get their message heard.
Writing, teamwork, games, challenges, and FUN! Same great coaches as our in-person camps, but with creative adaptation to an online format which promises to get campers thinking, creating, and moving on and off the screen. Effective written communication is an essential life tool for success in school, leadership and life!

This 1-week camp meets for 3 hours each day online. But 3 hours glued to a screen is not an option for our campers! Each day will include a combination of fun videos, a live virtual community where campers will participate in lessons, activities (on and off screens), various writing options and challenges both individually and in teams (inside and out!). They will earn points, create and team-build as they encourage each other throughout the week. Some activities may require extended time outside of the camp hours where they made need to venture outdoors and indoors to complete writing pieces and fun experiences. Camp will culminate with a presentation of completion and author readings.
