• As we come out of the deep freeze, grab your notebook and boots to walk on Write On, Door County’s trails for an hour of activity and inspiration.

March’s theme is A Fun Scavenger Hunt. A find-the-treasure activity sheet that gives visitors of all ages a list of nature items to look for on the path is available at The half-mile loop starts behind the Writing Center, 4210 Juddville Road in Juddville. No reservations are necessary.

• Write On, Door County will also host its Kids WOW creativity day camp July 12-16, 1-4 pm, for youth ages 8-12. Aspiring writers will learn about character, setting and plot from John Coy, an author of young-adult novels. First drafts, revisions and practice dialogue will be produced, resulting in a completed picture book. Most of the time will be spent outdoors thinking, writing and moving, and indoor time will be limited, with masks required. Register by April 1 at for the early-bird rate. Space is limited to 10 students.
