Bio: My name is Erin Denny and I have been fortunate enough to have traveled the world. During my travels, I have seen and met some amazing people and have had many awesome adventures. As a teacher, I have used those experiences countless times in the classroom…in the form of art, lessons of history and geography, the sharing of differences between cultures, etc. I believe those experiences helped me become a better teacher. Literature is also another great passion of mine. I love to read and believe that children’s books have immeasurable lessons in them, as well as beautiful art. I hope to combine these passions into one exciting week for everyone involved!

** You must put down a $60 non-refundable deposit in order to hold your spot. The remainder should be paid to the teacher on the first day of class.

** A second camp will be offered in July.
