Monday, June 12, 2017 - Friday, June 16, 2017
8:30 AM - 3:30 PM on LSU's campus
About the camp:
Through a unique collaboration between the LSU Writing Project and the LSU School of Education, the camp serves 40 local children (20 per camp) in 1st-6th grades. Certified, experienced Louisiana teachers will serve as camp counselors. In addition, campers will work one-to-one with additional teachers who are participating in the LSU Writing Project, under the instruction of LSU faculty. Campers will participate in activities focused on developing and extending reading, writing, and illustrating skills. The Tiger Tales Literacy Camp serves the needs of our community's children by providing unique opportunities for children to explore their skills in both writing and illustrating. These opportunities foster creativity and improve literacy skills while enjoying the excitement of the LSU campus.
Two separate sessions run simultaneously to serve 6-8 year olds and 9-11 year olds from 8:30am-3:30pm daily. The camp is based in Peabody Hall but campers will visit campus highlights throughout the week.
