Summer Writing Camps

Kids step slowly out of cars
Butterflies in my stomach as camp begins
Will I be in trouble if my spelling isn't perfect?
Writing is important for everyone.

The lobby of Eder Hall fills up
Some of us felt squashed
Why is Camp held at Missouri Western instead of at a regular school?
A new experience, new friends

Kids all talking to their friends, anxious to get to Murphy Hall
Excitement and happiness every morning
Why was I chosen for this camp?
I've made more friends, and found out its fun to write with friends.
