Shhh...It's a Mystery!

Does your young reader enjoy a page-turning mystery? Does he or she have a flair for detecting clues and guessing "whodunit"? Or perhaps they love the thrill of a suspenseful chase? Give your inquisitive storyteller something to ignite their imaginations and express their dreams this summer by learning the art of mystery writing. Students will create a mystery/suspense short story of their own during the week. They will also participate in a mystery party that will be acted out during the camp. Come find your inner Sherlock Holmes in our newest writing camp, Shh…It’s a Mystery!
