If you are thinking about a way to earn extra income during breaks, my Young Writer's Camp curriculum has everything you need to run a fun "writing camp." I typically make from $500-$800 a session - depending on the number of kids I allow. I am delighted you are checking it out to earn a little extra over winter break or even to kick off the new year with an after school program.
This bundle includes everything you need to run a week long camp for creative writing -including advertising flyers, parent notes, pricing, etc. The title on the document states "Summer Camp" but it is not season-specific and works the same for any school break (winter, spring) or it can be broken into a 6 week after school enrichment class.
The curriculum covers descriptive writing techniques, elements of a story- character, setting, problem/solution, and activities to help organize writing (e.g. transitions, logical sequencing).
This module also contains extremely detailed daily curriculum as well as pre-made flyers to advertise the class and a parent letter to explain the principles taught in each class. You can use these plans "as is" with the PDF documents, or modify the word documents to fit your style.
Also included are lined and blank writing templates - print for the kids writing paper during class or use them to create your own flyers, etc.
I have taught these courses for the last 4+ years as a summer camp session, an after school weekly program and a winter break camp. Over and over, students and parents have been delighted with the results.
It was originally generated as an after school program so it is light, fun and appeals to the senses with tactile stimulation, art and food... and yet it covers a solid foundation for creative writing. After all, the majority of kids are not thrilled about taking another class at the end of the day, so I made sure this was a completely fun approach to writing.
I charge $85/per student and have run each session for 8-14 kids, although 8 really is an ideal number.
I have had a lot of success with these lessons and I hope you will too!
Thanks for looking!!
