Hunting for Local Treasures: Kids Writing Camp

Local Treasures Writing ProgramHunting for Local Treasures
Grades 3-5, 6-8
July 22nd-26th  9:00-12:00

We all have stories to tell.  Using the resources and the grounds of the Monadnock Center for History and Culture, we will build on the stories of others’ lives to create our own.  Young writers will discover and write about the local treasures in their families and their own communities.   We will write from artifacts and our senses, from remnants of the past as well as what we find around us, sharing our stories as we begin to write our own history.  The camp will use the resources of the Historical Society’s “Monadnock Treasures” exhibit.

Camp Leaders: Jill Lawler is retired after teaching English at ConVal; she now works with teachers and students around the state through the National Writing Project of New Hampshire.  Liz Lawler has taught kindergarten, second and third grade at Antrim Elementary School for the past five years; previously she was a teacher in the Leadership Decisions Institute at Camp Kieve in Nobleboro, Maine.

Cost: $125.00 per camper per session

Special discounts:  Family discount: $10.00 off the tuition of each additional child from the same family. Early registration: send in form by June 1, 2013 and $10.00 discount.

Some scholarship assistance is available.

The Monadnock Center for History and Culture,  and the National Writing Project in New Hampshire (at Plymouth State University) are both non-profit institutions.
