Summer Ink Writing CampsAt Lake Erie Ink’s week-long summer camps, youth (entering grades 2-12) explore their imaginations, develop writing skills, and collaborate with peers. Summer camps start June 12th and dig deep into fun writing genres, including comics, ‘zines, plays, puppets, and more, giving youth the chance to create writing and art that builds literacy skills and reminds kids of their own powers of self-expression. Registration for 2017 summer camps is now open.
