Gwinn, MI – July 9, 2014 – Writing is about more than putting typing out words on a keyboard. Fourth and fifth grade Gwinn students escaped the classroom and went exploring for the fourth consecutive year of the Gwinn Area Community Schools Summer Youth Writing Camp.
Along with reading books about writing and poetry, they explored the outdoors, visited museums, wrote, and shared their writing. This year the South County Fund Committee stepped up to help fund the summer program.
Additional funds were provided by an Excellence in Education grant. The camp was developed and coordinated by fifth grade teacher, Deborah Goldsworthy.
