Sunny Kids Camp: Creative Writing Camps
For children aged 7 – 15 years
Tuesday 4 April and Wednesday 12 April
Enjoy a full day writing camp with one of Australia’s most popular children’s authors working in a tutorial/class environment with one-on-one time throughout the day plus instructions and advice on writing.
School holidays can seem incredibly long when the kids don’t have a routine and you’re trying to get work done in between entertaining lively and energetic children. Don’t let the holidays go to waste! Keep the kids occupied, centred, focused, inspired, engaged and educated with a full day writing workshop at Sunny Kids Camp.
Each day’s program offers variety in material to keep young minds switched on and learning. There are both elements of writing and drawing involved in each program, with plenty of stimulating discussion, group and individual exercises, plus take home materials.
We have designed the camps to allow for longer days so you can get to work early and don’t have to rush back to pick up the kids after only a few hours. The sessions are run by Aleesah Darlison, award-winning and multi-published children’s author, along with special guests as and when needed. Children remain supervised throughout the day. The camp classes are restricted to twenty-five students to ensure maximum benefit for each child.
8:30am: Camp opens for registration. You're welcome to kiss and drop if you like as children will be supervised from the start, otherwise stay until class starts.
