Join us for a week of creativity this summer! Rising third to eighth graders (ages 7 to 13) are invited to participate in Furious Flower’s 13th annual Children’s Poetry Camp, “Alive With Words.” This day camp (no overnight stay) for both girls and boys starts at 9am and concludes at 2pm each day on the JMU campus. 

Campers attend age-appropriate workshops on writing, movement, visual art, and rhythm-making. This is an integrated arts program with an emphasis on expression, inclusion, and fun. 

Registration fee is $75. Lunch and snacks are provided, and scholarships are available upon request by sending an email to furiousflower@jmu.edu.

Each of our workshops is taught by a professional who is assisted by three camp counselors, which ensures a 1:4 ratio of adults to children (no more than 15 children per workshop). Children attend three workshops a day, and our goal is to inspire them to discover all the ways they can be creative with words: through writing, dance, music, art, and more. On Friday, the last day of camp, we celebrate with a grand finale performance and art show.
