Salt Spring Island is one of my most favourite places in the whole world and combine that with a poetry slam camp and it’s heaven!

The Poetry Slam Camp is a great opportunity for high school students to harness their creativity by learning the craft of poetry.

Students between 15 and 18 years of age are eligible. The Camp will be two fun-filled days of writing, performance, and learning. Cost: $50, including accommodation, meals, and classes.
