The Chippewa River Writing Project aims to provide youth and fellow community members with unique opportunities to write and learn about themselves as writers.
This summer, we are pleased to offer four different camp opportunities, three on CMU’s campus and one in Portland.
Together we’ll be sharing a love for writing. Let your child join us on an exciting journey through engaging activities as we live out our “writerly lives.”
Your enrollment cost will provide transportation and admission to field trips, snacks, a writer’s journal, camp T-shirt, and a copy of our camp anthology, commemorating our published works. We ask that students bring their own lunch each day.
All registrations must be complete by June 10, 2016. Should you need to cancel your registration, we will accept cancellations with a full refund through June 10, 2016, after which we will charge a $20 cancellation fee.
Questions? Please contact CRWP Director, Troy Hicks, at email@example.com, or the camp directors listed on the PDFs.
For more information, select the PDF or Smore version of our flyers.
Experience a unique, one-week (August 14 – 19, 2016) field experience at CMU’s Biological Station on Beaver Island of Lake Michigan. Study ecosystems, technology, and strategies for integrating reading, writing, critical thinking into the classroom. Working in pairs or small teams, this workshop is designed for educators based in the same middle school (grades 6-8).
Local students who are currently in grades 3-12 are welcome to join us for Manuscript Day. Instructors for the event are teachers who have participated in the Chippewa River Writing Project and pre-service teachers from CMU who are excited about working with your child.
