Immerse yourself in the world of Harry Potter as we turn all of Writers & Books into Hogwarts! Throughout the week students will have the chance to attend classes in herbology, care of magical creatures, charms, transfiguration, divination, history of magic, and much more! Hands-on activities will be accompanied by creative writing exercises to spur the imagination. You will be sorted, earn house points, play Quidditch, participate in Harry Potter trivia, write for the Daily Prophet, explore the Neighborhood of the Arts with an eye for the magical, and of course on Friday, July 31, we will celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday! Every morning all students from every year and every house will gather in the Great Hall for a special activity to start the day.

And watch out! You just might run into Moaning Myrtle in the bathroom!

oin The Order of the Phoenix and find out what your gifts and talents might be in the wizarding world, what you would contribute as a member of the Order, and how that might translate to your real life. Class discussion will include jobs in the wizarding world, social causes (both within the wizarding world and the muggle world) defense against the dark arts (including careful examination of your own patronus), and the essential self—the part of each of us that emerges when we are free to be ourselves. A wide range of writing activities will provide the means to further explore these topics. Most of all, we will submerge ourselves in the world of Harry Potter, gathered together with equally enthusiastic fans.
