Authors, illustrators and other experts educate, motivate and mentor the campers. The students' writing and illustrating skills are developed, their knowledge of careers in literature increases and they continue to develop an interest in learning opportunities outside the formal classroom.

Book Camp London 2018 was a huge success!

We really enjoyed hearing from our keynote speaker, Newbery Medal-winning Christopher Paul Curtis! He was phenomenal!
Some of the other amazing authors that provided workshops were Judy Ann Sadler, Leslie Grant,  Brian McLachlan,  Casey Lyall and Heather Smith! It was definately an exciting week!

This year we partnered with  Exodus Escape Rooms and had fun-filled trip to their escape rooms. It was such a great way for the campers to use their creativity and work through the stories of the rooms. The campers also got a behind the scenes tour of Corus Radio and London Public Library. Now, they have a lot of insights into the myriad of ways writing can be used in different ways!
