Can you find inspiration? Ready, Set, Write!

Have you ever dreamed of taking a writing class where you were at the helm of the ship?  Together with Sidwell Friends Lower School teacher Sarah Tiamiyu, we will brew up a writing experience designed - by you - to hook your audience. So bring all of your unpublished pieces to this space.  Every day we will find a "writing focus" from "the untrue" to a haiku to the five senses, bringing us right to that very moment when you Saw-Tasted-Smelled-Felt-and-Heard it! What if we started with the illustration? How are you visualizing your story in your imagination? Let's start with the picture and then build in the words.  This is an inclusive experience--students will be heavily involved in the planning. All aboard…to destinations to be determined by YOU!

Adding PM Programs

Sidwell Summer has a number of afternoon options that can be paired with morning Ready, Set, Write! to create a full day of camp fun for your child!  If participating in AM Ready, Set, Write! and then a different PM program, campers will eat lunch and be escorted by staff to the afternoon option you select.

PM options are listed below:

Beginner Chess – (Grades K-5)  Students will learn all about the chess pieces and chess board at a gentle pace, adding details bit by bit as they accumulate all the knowledge necessary to play a full game of chess.  Ready, Set, Write! + Beginner Chess = $530.

Handwork Day Camp – (Grades K-6) The Handwork Day Camp option includes fun sewing, knitting and crafting projects lead by the experienced Handwork Studio staff. New projects will be introduced each week! Ready, Set, Write! + Handwork = $530.

LEGO® Engineering – (Grades 2-5)  This LEGO® experience is an original program designed by Play-Well instructors and each week’s program has a different theme . Click here for information on this program. Ready, Set, Write! + LEGO® = $575.

Splash More – (Grades 2-5) After lunch, campers will take a Sidwell bus to the Bethesda pool for free swim. There is no formal swimming instruction offered; therefore, campers should be comfortable in the water.  Ready, Set, Write! + Splash More = $430.

Theater – (Grades K-3)  Led by instructors from Imagination Stage, this afternoon program will feature different weekly themes such as Fairytale Adventures and Kids in Space.  Imagination Stage “fosters a creative environment for children to develop their skills in, and understanding of, the theatre arts in a fun and stimulating way."  Ready, Set, Write! + Theater = $500.
