Adventure Write Away

Imagine you’re hiking in the mountains when a lightning storm appears from nowhere. Do you: a) Turn around and head back to the base, b) Try to find refuge in a cave until the storm blows over, c) Keep hiking through the storm in hopes that it doesn’t get worse, or d) Hope that Sasquatch doesn’t find you?!

In this camp, we’ll explore the basics of adventure storytelling. Using a variety of online tools and resources, we’ll help you develop skills to visually map your narratives. Students will also write their own adventure stories and turn them into digital interactive products!
