Keep flexing their creative muscles even after school is out this summer! We’ll write stories, play word games, read together and listen to our fellow writer’s tales. If either your child loves to weave stories or hates to pick up a pencil, all levels of writing are tended to, nurtured, and encouraged. Half-day camps are offered in June in the Los Feliz neighborhood.  Morning Camp 9am-12pm or afternoon camp: 1-4pm. Ages 8-12.
