The Camp Rolling Hills series has been reviewed as laugh-out-loud hilarious with plenty of energy and originality, and so have Stacy's visits to schools and camps! The excitement is contagious as she introduces the themes, casts the kids as the characters, and coaches them as they perform "camp letters" in the books. The series is based on a musical she co-wrote, also called Camp Rolling Hills, which was produced in Manhattan starring the Broadway kids of Matilda, Elf, and A Christmas Story, and so she facilitates an active sing-a-long of the musical's song "Letter Writing" too! Writing across mediums is Stacy's specialty, and she loves answering questions about the process.
The workshops—structure, timing, content—are all flexible. Though typically, Stacy facilitates one to four 45-minute workshops, reaching different grades—third, fourth, fifth, or sixth.
Stacy has different rates for the NYC Department of Education public schools, schools in the Tristate area, schools outside the Tristate area, Skype visits, camps, book clubs, and Skype book clubs.
