logoWick Juniors Writing Club began offering a summer camp in 2016. This camp is offered in partnership with the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Students entering grades 3 through 12 will experience one day with the Wick Poetry Center teachers at Kent State University, followed by a three-night, four-day stay at the Environmental Education Center (EEC) in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Through guided hikes, pond dips, and more, the young writers will explore how the natural world influences our writing. A culminating reading will be held on the grounds of the CVNP.

Trained Wick Poetry Center teaching artists and the CVNP Environmental Education Center teachers will facilitate the camp activities.
