Have you ever wished you could tell everyone exactly what you think of the latest fad? Have you ever left a movie and found yourself unable to stop talking about it? At Young Critics Camp, your opinion matters! Campers will experience the entire journalistic process as they report on movies, restaurants, and a few other events that lend themselves to spreading the word. Campers will be guided through both written and onscreen reviews. Laptops or other devices used for word processing are encouraged!
When: August 9‑12
Grade Level: Grades 5‑8

What's summer without grammar? We thoroughly explore the eight parts of speech, the foundation of all grammar study. Students become more familiar with the functions of words and how they work together within a sentence.
Please note that this camp will be taught both virtually and on campus.
More Summer at Independence Specialty Camps will be announced in the coming weeks!
