EVERY KID HAS A STORY!
In the past ten years, STEM activities and careers have taken the spotlight as the most important for your child's enrichment. However, learning effective and engaging storytelling for children can be equally, if not more, beneficial to young people. Telling stories and learning what makes a captivating story is an essential tool of communication and engagement in any facet of life. Young Authors Academy of Saratoga Springs is open to students entering grades 1-4.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Young Authors Camp of Saratoga Springs provides an opportunity for children to use creative stories of their own invention as a means of entertainment and expression. In telling their own stories and developing their own story arcs, students understand the power of the language we choose to shape the tales we tell.
Young Authors Camp of Saratoga Springs allows your child to find their storytelling voice and also transfer those skills to presentation, feedback, performance and creative writing. Young Authors Camp will have them writing stories as an imaginative exercise, not an academic assignment.
