Camp Crayon is a handwriting camp that utilizes the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. The curriculum utilizes a hands-on, multi-sensory approach to writing. Camp Crayon will offer 3 unique camps for children entering Kindergarten through the 5th grade in the fall. Each camp will focus on different skill areas that match the child’s cognitive and developmental readiness for handwriting and therefore will be placed according to skill level rather than by grade level. Camp will be held at Baabals Ice Cream & Coffee Shoppe at 188 St Johns Rd, Fletcher, NC 28732.

Camp Fee is $250 - Register by May 31st for Early Bird Discount of $25. Registrations close June 15th.
