Button Poetry Extension

Summer Slam Poetry Camp

This year we are excited to announce we are offering an optional Saturday extension that includes a field trip to The Twin Cities for a poetry festival hosted by our new partners, Button Poetry. Not only will the event showcase performances by adult poets and mentors from the slam community, the festival will also feature performance opportunities for campers and--most importantly--a large scale youth poetry slam open to the public. The extension price is only $30, which covers cost for transportation, food, an extra day in the dorm, and admission to the festival. Campers hoping to take advantage of this amazing opportunity should make travel considerations appropriately--plane tickets should be scheduled for early Sunday, June 29th, or students are free to return with parents attending the festival following the festivities on Saturday night, June 28th.
