After an eight year break, there was enough interest from students and parents to revive the Four Winds Summer Writing Program which ran from 2007-2010. Four Winds’ 2018 Summer Writing and Art Camp and had 14 “happy campers” in attendance for a week of creativity and fun.
Our goal was to provide a safe and fun environment for kids to develop their art and/or creative writing skills during the summer. In the mornings we will did both free and structured art and writing activities and ate snack and lunch. We spent the afternoons swimming at the Green River when it was nice, and hanging out at French King Bowling the day it rained. Check out our gallery below to see pictures from the great week at camp.
