Come see what we’re cooking up in this year’s spring break Children’s Book Writing Camp! This camp is for 3rd and 4th grade OUSD students. 10 students will create a picture book featuring food and a recipe. Join us in creating food monsters, exploring culinary family traditions, and time traveling to delicious new lands!

During your week with us, you will learn how to write a great book, write that great book, meet a bunch of local children's book authors, and finally pair up with a professional illustrator who will illustrate your story for a June book release here at Chapter 510.

The camp will culminate in a published book per young author, each illustrated by a professional illustrator who will work with each writer on their book.
