The College Bound camps include “Writing for the ACT” from June 2-6, and “Writing a College Admission Essay” is scheduled for June 9-13. Both are from 9 a.m.-noon each day. The cost is $150 per camp.
The Red Mountain Writing Project is a local affiliate of the National Writing Project and has a mission to provide a forum for teachers of all grade levels and in all content areas to study and develop new and innovative strategies for literacy instruction.
