What's Included

It’s time to speak your mind. Slam Camp will teach you how to write and perform original poetry and stories about the issues that are important to you. Award-winning slam coaches and writers will help you explore current events, your community and neighborhood, and your own truths. Our slam coaches and instructors will help you develop tricks and techniques to make your words more powerful. You will develop your writer’s instinct, gain confidence, and improve your public speaking skills. Our coaches will focus on the importance of knowing your audience when performing, and you will explore how writing on paper takes on a different life when spoken on stage. At the end of camp, you’ll broadcast your message to the world with a performance of your own work. For students entering 7th through 12th Grade in the 2014 fall semester. Select one session for each child you are enrolling in camp. A sibling discount of $50 per additional child will be added at Check-Out.
