Just before school starts up again, the Lyceum offers to take teens through the art of essay writing. A feature in our summer camp calendar every year, this camp is one not to be missed. What exactly is a thesis statement and how do you write supporting paragraphs that build interest rather than come across as formulaic? What’s all this stuff about citing sources? We’ll walk you through it step by step, providing you with no-fail techniques for tackling any essay that might be thrown your way. Using the strangest topics you’ll ever come across, we’ll write two essays in the course of the workshop, giving you the chance to try out everything you’ve learned and receive one-on-one feedback from Lyceum staff.
