"Come Learn About Creative Writing" is a four day virtual camp meant to teach third and fourth graders a few extra tips and tricks for creative writing.
4:15-5 p.m., Feb. 16-19
The first day is about introductions, both between the kids and the different types of creative writing, as well as brainstorming games to think of writing ideas. The second and third days are about the two main types of creative writing, prose and poetry (stories and poems), and end with a writing game relevant to the type of writing we go over that day and a ten minute slot for free writing/question answering. On the final day, students have 20 extra minutes of free writing time before they are encouraged to share one piece of prose and one piece of poetry with the rest of the group.

CHIP is short for the Children's Health Insurance Program - Pennsylvania's program to provide health insurance to uninsured children and teens who are not eligible for or enrolled in Medical Assistance. Nine out of 10 CHIP parents report satisfaction with their child’s health plan, and 96% received an appointment for check-ups and vaccinations as soon as they wanted.
There are a lot of reasons kids might not have health insurance - maybe their parents lost a job, don't have health insurance at work or maybe it just costs too much. Whatever the reason, CHIP may be able to help. All families need to do is apply today.
