The Nature of Writing

What happens when young writers use the great outdoors for inspiration? Explore the BYU campus as we discover the sights, smells, and sounds of summer! Each morning will include a focused writing lesson that will be applied outside in nature. Students will keep a nature journal that includes painting and writing about nature and a composition notebook for writing inspired by art. This camp is for children who like to feel the sun on their face and grass under their feet!

BYU campus locations we will visit include the duck pond, Bean Museum, Museum of Paleontology, and the bell tower pond and stream.
