About WITS Digital

Writers in the Schools (WITS), in partnership with Histrionix Learning Company, has implemented a new digital initiative in schools. WITS Digital is an innovative program that combines writing and game-based technologies, bridging the process of writing with that of game design. Through game play, students become creators versus consumers of media, using their writing as the foundation for design as a new method for publication.


"[My daughter] liked every part of the week. She became bereft Thursday afternoon knowing that it would come to an end." — Parent, Summer Camper

"How rewarding [it is] to find a place that brings the best of so many camps [...] and is able to also showcase the richness of Asia and its contributions." — Parent, Summer Camper

"My kids were very happy all week; every day for them was so much fun. They made very good friends. They enjoyed and appreciated the service and attention they received from each one of the instructors." — Parent, Summer Camper
