Location: Saratoga Family Health NPs Palliative Care Center 254 Church Street (Lower Level), Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 

Kids have a lot to say and process—and besides that they are creative! Writing Camp will provide kids with a relaxed, but lively atmosphere in which to write and explore feelings, ideas and theories about how the world works.  Using fun prompts and exercises, kids will have the opportunity to express themselves in writing and grow their confidence as writers.  They will be invited and given opportunities to share their stories, poems, character sketches etc—but sharing will not be mandatory. Besides having a good time, the goal of Writing Camp is to help kids find writing a useful tool for both creative expression and emotional wellness. Journals and snacks will be provided.

Cost:  $75

Facilitators: Melissa Pilkey and Elaine Handley

Melissa Pilkey is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in private practice for 19 years. Dr. Elaine Handley is a published writer and professor. 518 581-8699 ext. 6
