Summer Camp Recap + Prize Winners
Wow! What a magical two days. We had so much fun with you during our online Summer Camp: Brave Writer Style.
We are so thrilled with the incredible energy you put into your summer camps. I got tickled seeing so many versions of tents, s’mores, face paints, creating indoor picnics, splashing in pools, and hiking through forests.
You know what happened this week? You enchanted the learning atmosphere in your homes both for your kids and for yourselves! Learning was nearly effortless as a result and memories were made. I loved watching all of it unfold.
We had fun giving away prizes too! So without further ado, here are our winners of all the prizes. Thanks for playing!
Here are the winners:
Our GRAND PRIZE winner won the Charlotte Mason Original Homeschool Series republished by Simply Charlotte Mason:
We’re also tossing in an autographed copy of our Poetry Teatime Companion as well as the DVD set of my best convention talks: Nurturing Brave Writers. So happy for Nicole!
Next, we asked you to post photos to the Instagram #bwcamp hashtag and hundreds of you did!
It was so hard to pick a favorite, but we couldn’t resist this fabulous act of selfcare posing as camping:

Lindsay will receive a set of A Gracious Space books. A Gracious Space is a collection of 50 non-sectarian essays for daily reading intended to help you sustain your brave homeschooling commitment.

We also rewarded our live attendees who braved Kirsten Merryman’s Online Class Q&A. Our winner gets to pick an online writing class to try for free!

Two campers won the book Whatever the Weather by Annie Riechmann and our very own Dawn Suzette Smith.
Whatever the Weather includes science experiments and art activities that explore the wonders of weather.
“Let the weather take the lead and never be bored again! Paint in the rain, send kites soaring in the wind, build ice orbs, and become a snowflake scientist—let the wonders of nature inspire your next adventure.” —Amazon
Rita Cevasco and Tracy Molitors (Rooted in Language) led our summer camp session that addressed learning challenges, and two attendees won the Annotating Literary Elements Curriculum.
Congrats to Heather Schott and Kendra Rousseau!
“Annotation is a broad concept that can be confusing: What should the reader notice within a story? Which details of a story are worth annotating? How will making notes lead to deeper understanding? This curriculum is full of strategies, taught within multiple lessons. It provides literature for practice, but the strategies can be practiced again and again with other texts throughout the school year and for years to come!”
Plus five ladies won our Brave Camper T-Shirt!
Congratulations to all and a big THANK YOU to everyone who attended the sessions!
Camp may be over but don’t be a stranger. We love hearing from you and seeing how you implement Brave Writer principles into your homeschools. We’ve got more fun up our sleeves for fall. For instance…well, I can’t tell you yet. It’s a doozy though! Another free romp that is sure to turbo boost the writing life in your house.
Stay tuned for September!
Until then, join me on Facebook Live on Monday at 11:30 AM Eastern and enjoy more summer camp pics below.
