I'm not sure there are any slots left, but if you're kid is creative and not good with the heat- this is a real great opportunity-
Richmond Young Writers is a great program with exciting and interesting leaders to run your smart kid through all manner of word related activities.
Not to mention the poetry lady is very cool.
