This is a sponsored post. How cool would it be to attend to a virtual writing camp with Jeff Kinney? If anyone can get kids excited to write over the summer, it would be him!

  1. My kids are a bit young for this, but what a great camp!

    I bought my daughter a new red (novelty!) composition notebook to write stories in this summer, and for now that is plenty of motivation for her!

  2. Wow! What a cool thing. My oldest is still one year too young but this will certainly be on my radar for next year!

    And I just have to tell you, I have missed having the chance to comment here. We moved a few weeks ago and I am just now coming up for air! Glad to be back 🙂

  3. My kids are too young, but back when I taught 5th and 6th grade, I read this series aloud to them and took the time to show the pictures as we were reading. I laughed as hard as the kids did, if not more. On the playground, we would pass around “The Cheese Touch” while laughing hysterically. Other teachers wanted to get in on the fun, so I gave them a copy of the book so they knew what they were doing when passing around The Cheese Touch. Love, love, love these books!

    • Hi Shay,
      I know very few kids who haven’t read and loved the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and it’s the one series that reluctant readers will happily read. I think it’s so wonderful that Jeff Kinney is now branching out into encouranging kids to write. I’m hopeful that the reluctant readers who love his book will venture into his writing camp as well. That would be so awesome!

    I am a teacher so I try not to pressure my kids to do a lot of work during the summer so they can enjoy their break. I make them keep reading because that is important. My older son would love this giveaway. He is creative and loves to write. And, he is starting middle school next year. This would be great summer work. 🙂

  5. Katie

    We are participating in the library reading program and we are using Aleks math for math. I’d really like to add more writing as we haven’t really done much in this area yet.

  6. Jeanette Nyberg

    This is AWESOME! We’ll be looking into this next year for sure.

    Dylan will go to an academic/adventure camp where he (hopefully) will work on some skills and also develop confidence.

    What a fantastic opportunity! I almost want to keep it a secret (but I won’t).

    My kid loved his books.

  10. Kelly

    This sounds like so much fun. My oldest daughter writes all the time.

  11. Thank you so much for this chance! My son would LOVE this!!! I am glad I found your site – I will be a regular reader from now on! : )

    Yes, I’m totally signing up my daughter, Riley. She will be thrilled!! We pick her up from horse back riding camp today, and I’ve made a little certificate to give to her as a gift sharing the news of this writing camp. She will be so happy! Plus, I’ll be happy knowing she will be practicing her writing skills this summer in a fun, inspiring, and motivating way.
