The campaign has ended, but

you can still continue to show your support. Give now!

All contributions will be collected automatically until May 31, 2018, 7AM EST.

Every summer, rising students in grades 3-12 have an exciting opportunity to improve their literacy skills right in their backyard at Clarke Central High School. During this annual camp, students work with Red Clay Writing Project teachers for four days before enjoying a Writer’s Cafe celebration of their work.

Last year, the camp provided this writing enrichment experience to 50 children. This year, the camp aims to increase that number from 50 to 75, but we need your help to accomplish this goal!

Due to the cost of the camp, many children are unable to participate. However, with scholarship support, more students can cultivate a love for writing and hone their writing skills with the help of local educators. A donation of $120 will sponsor one child and cover the cost of that child’s Camp Red Clay experience, but any amount will make a difference.

All donations will be applied to students’ enrollment costs, materials, and food. With your support, more children can express their love of writing and realize how powerful writing can be as a life skill.

For more than 10 years, Camp Red Clay has helped children and teenagers, who have a passion for writing, hone their skills during a four-day camp. The camp is offered through the Camp Red Clay Writing Project in the UGA College of Education.

Taught by local educators who have completed the intensive Red Clay Writing Project Summer Institute, the camp is eager to provide even more young students with this enrichment opportunity to work on a variety of writing projects designed to improve their literacy skills.
