Summer Camp Success!

I had my first children/teen summer camp in Skerries a week ago and it went really well, even if I say so myself. Above you can see the very intelligent and likable bunch who attended. They wrote stories together about characters living in the Big Brother house, and afterwards, followed them home to show how their lives were changed after the experience. Later I asked them to describe the sensation of eating a piece of chocolate Santa Claus, (whilst chewing) and the prize for the best one was the rest of the large Santa all to themselves. Characters fainted from chocolate fireworks in their mouths or were lifted up to heaven by multitudes of angels. The results were brilliant and I discovered a key motivational tool in writing – chocolate.
And I thought it was all about the love of the craft!
My next summer camp is in Rathdown school, Glenageary next week and I’m looking forward to it. First I must go and source another chocolate santa…
