Designed to reach elementary school writers of all enthusiasm and ability levels, this summer program will allow each camper to create a portfolio of pieces that range from silly to thoughtful to imaginative. We focus on having fun while boosting writing skills in a warm, nurturing, and exciting environment. This program is led by Chloe Kaplan, a Sidwell Friends alum and founder of Amore Learning.
