It's sixth period and you're totally exhausted. You've seen some inspiring things today and some, well, just kind of strange things. You've been really happy and excited, maybe even really sad and frustrated. But not once before this moment have you had the chance to turn it all into...FICTION! Join us as we take the tales of our morning rides to CAAP, the shoes our parents bought us last week, our best friends, our worst enemies, and turn them all into THE MOST AMAZING SHORT STORIES EVER WRITTEN!
As a staffer on the Oak Tree Times - Creative Arts at Parks daily newspaper - you will become part of a tradition of journalistic excellence, excitement, and exploits. Responsible for creating CAAPs only communal source of information, the OTT staff shares its interviews, news, columns, features, photographs, artwork, reviews, cartoons, and humor with hundreds of readers each day. If you enjoy writing, editing, or art, join our team. No previous newspaper experience required.

The improvisational skills of an actor. The visual sense of a painter. That wild imagination of... yours! Before a movie becomes a great movie, it becomes a great script. We will discover the joys and agonies of screenplay structure, dialogue and character - progressing from exercises to writing scenes for a Festival Day reading. Well learn about the differences between screenwriting and playwrighting and study the traditional screenplay structure so we can happily break the rules. Go as far and as deep as you want on your dream movie voyage!
Games that have a focus on words are always a big hit at CAAP. If you like Scrabble, Bananagrams, Boggle, Apples to Apples, and other word games, then this is a class you will enjoy. Play just for fun, see how you do in the WORDPLAY games tournament, and learn some new games too. Campers will even have a chance to try to design and play their own word games with the class! Come join the fun!
Have you ever written a story and then felt compelled to draw a picture to help explain it? Have you drawn a picture and then all of a sudden had a fantastic story to tell? If so, then this is a class for you. Campers will write stories and then experiment with a variety of techniques to illustrate them. The stories will then be put on the computer and be presented in multimedia. Join this creative class if you dream of seeing your stories come to life.
