Stories of FDR: A Nature-Writing Summer Camp

August 22 @ 9:00 am - August 27 @ 1:00 pm

Calling all 5th–7th graders! Join us for a nature-writing camp in Philadelphia’s historic FDR Park!

In “Stories of FDR,” rising 5th–7th graders will spend the week creating writing inspired by the nature and history of FDR Park. Campers will explore the significance of this land using a range of different nature-writing genres, spanning from haiku to futuristic fiction. Together, instructors and campers will write stories about the land’s transformation and how they contribute to the landscape of nature.

If the cost of attendance poses a financial barrier to you, we have full and partial scholarships available! Email to ask about scholarships.
