Picture it:
One day after school, you find a photo of your beloved dog stuck inside your locker with the following note: “If you want to see Smitty McFurface again, meet me on the football field in ten minutes. COME ALONE.” Do you: a) Follow the note’s instructions exactly, b) Go to the football field but bring your best friend, or c) Take the note directly to the principal’s office?

If you’ve ever wanted to write a story that gives readers the freedom to seek their own destiny, this is the camp for you. We’ll explore the basics of choose-your-own-adventure storytelling and learn how to use free online tools to help organize and visually map multi-thread narratives. Students will create their own interactive adventure stories and turn them into digital, playable products.
