7. WORDshop 2018: Implementing and Assessing a Youth Writing Camp at Taylor University

Hannah Perry Taylor University
Faculty Sponsor(s): Carie King Taylor University
WORDshop is a writing camp for students grades 4-12 in the Upland, IN, area. Because the summer of 2018 was the first attempt at hosting the camp, the work focused on the assessment of logistical elements of running a camp, including marketing strategies, "teacher" training (university-level English majors), and parents' responses to their child(ren)'s participation in writing activities. At the end of the camp week, the directors were encouraged by the students' enthusiasm and the most asked question at the end of camp: "You're going to have camp next year, right?"
