06-27-13

The Literature Camp is held every June on campus.

Misericordia University students, faculty and staff volunteered at the annual Literature Career Exploration Camp which enables rising high school juniors and seniors who have a love of English and literature to explore careers in those fields of study.

The Career Exploration Camps at Misericordia University are a popular destination for students who want to explore both college campus life and a potential career. Misericordia University offers nine popular academic camps every June in biology, business, chemistry-biochemistry, communications and media, English literature, nursing, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and teacher education.
 
The three-and-a-half-day, three-night residential camp is designed for high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for stories, poems, novels and the stage. Participants work with Misericordia faculty and students in a variety of workshop settings, including creative writing, literary adaptation, literature and pop culture, and literature in the multi-media age.
 
The camp explores literature from around the globe, including American, multi-ethnic and English literature, and looks at its use in popular culture such as Shakespeare in films.
